News from Home

This story has made the national news, which is not surprising, the gruesomeness of it all. I lived in that town for a long time. I spent a lot of time at the Library. The church I attended was just down the street... the police chief that is interviewed is the father of the kid who my daughter had her first date with. I don't know the little girl's family or the killer, but I can picture their apartment complex as if I was standing in front of it looking at it.

Its a nice, quiet, typical small town in the middle of Oklahoma. If the kids aren't safe there, they aren't safe anywhere.

The world has gone crazy. I'm not so sure I want to live in it anymore.

That's horrible. Makes you understand why a bleeding heart liberal like me supports the death penalty.
