Yep. That would save me a lot of work.

I've spent the last couple hours trying to transcribe the police scanner audio. Lots of it is hard to make out, but they picked up somebody, smoething about 4th marijuana, and I think Virginia Tech. (How's that for coinky-dink?)
Here is the feed I am using. I'm at 9:45:30 on my second pass through. The double spaced notes are from my first pass, and I did not get to the end. It will take me all day, I expect. If anyone is so inclined, please check my work, fill in gaps.
