    for the news item that been on a running cycle of our local news since Sunday evening.  It was bound to happen, but...

    A high school student who is a bit impaired coming home Saturday night crawls through the window of the house two doors down from his and "falls down on the stair well".  Owner of the home shoots and kills the "intruder", who is a disoriented teen just trying to get home without waking his parents.  Homeowner is defending his home against home invasion.  Teenager believes he is breaking into his own home.

    Put these two things together in a context of fear, loathing and "my home is my castle", shake vigorously and its a cocktail I'm surprised hasn't been on the menu before now.

    What a world.  ::sigh::

    Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds. --Elie Wiesel
