This morning, I put on the news on TV and couldn't find anything worth watching. I checked the local news. Nope. Well. The Phila. Inquirer reports
Killings by police rising at rapid pace On Sunday, for the 12th time this year, Philadelphia police fatally shot a man, putting 2006 on pace to be the deadliest year for police shootings in at least 25 years.What sent me searching the dial and the web was the BIG news of the day-- what a diner found in his burger at the local Fridays-- a piece of someone's finger. And we get that news with a closeup shot of someone slicing tomatoes with w very sharp knife.
At this time last year, police had shot and killed only one person.
In pure desperation, I turn to "Today in Washington", which is showing some obscure hearings on some aspect of real estate, with a bunch of republicans with bad hair (not that I'm one to talk, with zero hair.)
