  •  Oh man... (6+ / 0-)

    I read the linked story and realized this was just a couple of miles from me.

    This normally (relatively) quiet suburb has gone nuts. In the last ten days or so...also a couple of miles from me,

    A mother and accomplice stabbed her two children to death and injured a couple of others in what's been termed "an exorcism."

    A guy walks into a 7-11 with a box cutter and slashes the man working the counter 75 times, killing him.

    A couple of punks get into a drag race and sideswipe, sending one car off the road and onto a sidewalk where four little girls were walking home from school. One is dead, others seriously injured.

    And, oh, it was a little more than a few miles, but a kid walked into a nearby mall Saturday with a 12-gage shotgun and killed two people who worked on one of the stores, then himself.

    Madness.
