We do live in interesting times. The information highway is
flooded with news of just how crazy our society has gotten
and usually biased in some way.
We heard of the two police officers killed in Palm Beach and
the officer in Chicago that was assaulted by a guy on PCP
and wonder where we went wrong. Today we had our own bit of
excitement here on the east coast of Iowa.
I was loading recent pictures onto the computer when I heard
three loud, and fairly close, gunshots followed by the wail
of sirens just a few minutes later. The commotion woke the
wife up and she came down to ask if had heard the shots.
The wife thought the shots came from the south but I wasn’t
so sure. Turns out the shots were fired at a house just 3
lots west of us. The picture above shows a squad car that the
blocked the alley at our driveway.
Later the doorbell rang and I went out to meet an officer
who asked me a few basic questions. She was professional and
wrote down what was said. As she was leaving I told her to
stay safe and she looked at me like I grew another head.
She left her card and told me to call her if we had any
problems or remembered anything that could help and went on
her way. We still don’t know if anybody was hit but realize
she couldn’t tell us if there was.
If we don’t back the blue, get our country back, and elect
judges who will enforce the law, the future isn’t looking
Comments are always welcome.
