Let's be honest - - Is it just me, or is the news getting weirder and weirder around here?
Maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention all these years to the local "If it Bleeds, it Leads" T.V. stations?
I visit both KTVZ and KOHD websites, nowadays, even if I never listen to the actual newscasts.
That's why those mugshots really leap out at me. (Still noticing the really short hair on the perps....what, do they shave them in jail and they just haven't been out for very long?)
The Morticia-looking lady from Redmond stealing everything in sight. Really, I expected the rest of the Addams Family.
Or the Good Samanitarian who got in the middle of a fight in the street. (Apparently, the assailants were wielding broken windows from the Pink Pusseycat as weapons.)
Knife fights everywhere. (Have you noticed that anything short of a samurai sword results in less than fatal results? Same fights with guns, and there'd be a few more dead bodies. Just saying...this isn't a argument against guns. Well, maybe a little...)
And the true outrage. The kind of thing that bothers everyone. People shooting cats and horses and other critters.
I can watch any number of First 48 Hours type shows, but I can't watch Animal Cops. Cruelty to animals makes me sick.
I tell you, every thing's falling apart around here.
But, fortunately, we have professional City Managers who are probably paying close attention, and will be sure to fix it.
