Someone apparantly emptied a newspaper stand of its contents, which ended up strewn about J and 9th Streets early Thursday morning, creating quite the scene and mess.
A passerby stopped briefly to pick up one of the Sacramento News & Review copies, blew his nose in it, and put it back down on the street. Sacramento Police Department officers arrived, and indicated that city workers would clean up the newsprint.
A nearby businesses owner indicated that the papers had been there for at least an hour. The mess was cleaned up shortly after 9 a.m.
