Do you ever have those weeks where all the small things get in the way of the big things? That seems to be the shape of things for us right now.
Still: We have a number of news tidbits for you.
First, an update on yesterday's robbery arrests on Fresno: We learned that it all started in Oakland when a man robbed two women, ages 95 and 73, near the Morcom Rose Garden.
We've updated our story with what we know and are still looking into several related stories.
We also wrote about a woman whose purse was snatched while dining on College Avenue, a reported road-rage brandishing near Cal and a solo crash in North Berkeley that sent an Albany man to Highland.
They're all short pieces but we always try to include context where we can, including how incidents this year compare to last year at this time.
