I am too depressed to do a lot of writing tonight. And you can thank the animals living among us masquerading as human beings for my mood. You can also blame the holiday season and the NRA lobby for A-murder-ca becoming a literal killing field over the past few days. For example:
In Florida, a man goes on a killing spree allegedly murdering four family members after a Thanksgiving meal.
In Washington state a man ambushed and allegedly killed four police officers while they were getting ready to start their day in a coffee shop.
In Paterson, New Jersey, a man chased down and shot his wife and their two young sons. Fortunately -if there is such a thing as a silver lining in this tragedy- he allegedly only killed one of his intended targets before being shot and killed himself.
In Madison, Wisconsin, four people were shot in a domestic dispute.
And finally, in Kansas, the former director of a utility service allegedly shot and killed his estranged wife and two teenage daughters to death.
Are you starting to see a pattern here?
Oh well, back to my local killings here in Killadelphia. I am sure my local murder count needs updating. It is, after all, the holiday season. There is nothing like a little holiday cheer to bring out the killer in some of us.
