In Heat...

You know that old expression, “Crazy from the heat”? I think there is more to that than people want to believe. My wife and I settled in for the evening, flicked on the news and what did we see? Our local Hottie Fox23 Anchor, Chera Kimiko

telling us about a standoff with police. Ok, that in itself wasn’t too shocking. The fact that it was a mile and a half from my house was what caught my rapt attention.

Here is what they are saying about the incident so far:

An Owasso woman involved in a shooting and a standoff with police is now in police custody. Police tell Fox23 News the woman shot her roommate in the shoulder around 7 Wednesday night. The woman kept officers at bay inside her home. Owasso Police officers and Tulsa County Sheriff's Deputies surrounded the home. The man was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officers believe the woman shot the man over a property dispute.
We are already well above the number of murders we had this time last year. Violent crime is going through the roof. People are raping, fighting, killing, stealing and just generally running amok to an alarming degree. The experts say it is because of the unusually warm spring we’ve had. The heat wave brings out the inner nut, I guess…

In other news, we are expecting heavy rains today, which will lead to unseasonably cooler weather. It is my great hope the rain chases the nuts back into their shells.

Yeah, there are certain things I like to do more as it gets warmer, but going all gansta, isn’t one of them.
Have a nice day!

Wild! I wonder if Seasonal Affective Disorder would be a justifiable reason for murder?
