I was just on second avenue Thursday morning. Maybe minutes before this shooting!!!! NOT! Betcha Thursday morning ain't what we think about as a morning, you know...cup of coffee in hand as the sun is rising, or bustling off to work. I Bet, just on a hunch, it is morning defined as 12:01 through 5:00 a.m. You know, that time of day when most are sleeping, or posting from the security of a guarded compound, not out on the streets.

I could be wrong, though. Not the first time, nor will it be the last.

A street is olmstead

A street is olmstead homes...what is a grown man doing living in olmstead homes..a "gubimnet housan praject"???? I thought all convicted felons were not allowed to live in "gubiment housan"...well i guess with obammy in office he relaxed the rules on that as well. lets see "ole lowe" is a convicted felon..the next and most important question is "HOW IN THE WORLD DID HE GET A GUN???" now if any of you liberals/progressive/bleeding hearts out there care to answer i would appreciate it and while your are at it would you be kind enuff to explain how laws forbidding or restricting private handgun ownership by law-abiding citizens would have stopped this loser from getting a gun...because it looks like laws prohibiting CONVICTED FELONS from owning, possessing, buying, or attempting to buy a gun didn't work....
