Sentimental reasonz

The above photo comes from a story in the Post-Gazette about some totally Philly-style violence in the West End. Apparently a shooting of eight (eight!) people at once? Damn. Anyway, the story's not the point, the photo is.

Oh, and speaking of Philly-style violence, murder is apparently down like 15% or something this calendar year. Awesome. Now if we could only stop international news publications like the Economist from ceasing to farm out their stories on Philadelphia to the staffers that write about third world conflicts. "Philadelphia - more laid back than Serbia or Darfur!"

Oh, but apparently you can get shot in the head point blank for hitting somebody with a snowball.
