Kill Kill Kill



Finally I reach the rest stop I’m spending the nite at. It is huge, doubling as a tornado shelter, bathroom, and large hall housing mini-museum displays of rattlesnakes and ‘history’, and an outlet for their local – wherever that is – radio station.

Right.

The next ‘story’ is that an adolescent girl has been arrested for the murder of her parents. Sources say her brother is also under investigation. Her lawyer says she will definitely NOT be screened for not competent to stand trial.

And the last story is that another man has been arrested finally after a month of searching for him. A Latino. His partner was already killed by police. Both were wanted for burglary.

Wow, I feel so safe in America. Guns. Guns. Guns. Kill. Kill. Kill.
