What's with all the sirens?
We could hear them coming like gangbusters...
O-Town has joined the community of small towns,with huge whackos.
According to Action News;
"Friday morning, a student at Las Plumas High School took several classmates and a teacher hostage. He was upset over a break-up with his girlfriend. Classmates identified the suspect as 17-year-old Greg Wright.It started 9:15 this morning. Witnesses say Greg Wright went in to the band room and fired two shots. No one was hit. Students tell Action News that the suspect had been disgruntled over his breakup with his girlfriend. The suspect pointed the gun at a substitute teacher and took at least four people hostage.By 10:45 all hostages were released and the suspect is in custody. Parents picked up students at the Church of the Nazarene located at 2238 Monte Vista Avenue, south of Las Plumas High School.Crisis counselors and youth service counselors are at the Southside Community Center located at 2959 Wyandotte Avenue in Oroville. They are available for anyone who wants to talk with them."
Got a gripe?..Well hell,grab a gun and go take it out on your classmates.
Naturally,we all talked about this at work.Each of us speculating on the possible causes of this behavior,which seems to be more and more prevalent in this country.
Personally,I don't think he was given enough "time outs" as a child...Time out being defined as the time it takes out of a parent's busy day to whip the tar outta the little bastard every time he willfully disobeys...just my opinion.
Anyway..My neighbor just got a new laptop,and I promised to help him set it up.This could take a while.
After which,I'll get down to the business of visiting the residents of Bloggertown...It's Friday,..and life is temporarily being held hostage in Sling's Domain.
