If I've recently pissed you off, keep reading please! Yesterday I posted and got my facts confused. Del was kind enough to let me know what I did this morning and I've since updated the post. Regardless, I still feel a little guilty about it.
The sniper shootings that took place in and around the Washington DC area a year ago were really, truly frightening. I think most of us were afraid or at least indimidated by doing the mundane - getting gas, hitting an ATM or walking through a grocery store parking lot. And it seemed so random. It wasn't a black or white thing, it wasn't white or blue collar, urban or suburban. And, while I'm not a great believer in the death penalty, these guys, psycho or not, need to be held accountable for what they put the victims, their families and friends and the entire area through.
Regardless, a lesson to all you bloggers - don't try and post until you've consumed the requisite amount of coffee or whatever your stimulant of choice may be. And if I offended anyone, my humble apologies.Posted by Chris at October 31, 2003 2:00 PM
