Because that's what you WANT to notice. Did you hear about the woman who protected herself and her children by shooting an intruder breaking into her home? There are many news articles of people using a weapon to protect themselves or foiling a robbery if you would just bother to look.
This is what we call "ignorance" on your part.
Yes, they're all over, no doubt. It's just my inattentiveness. I guess I don't share your keen sense of observation.

News Flash!
I took a dump around 2:30 PM EDT. Possibility of me urinating @ 6:00 Stay tuned for updates as they happen!
In other news, someone named sam drank rap poison and is not expected to post anything logical for the next few years. It will apparently either live in an assisted living facility or become the worlds ugliest pole dancer.
I can't imagine why female Floridians aren't beating a path to your door. They must not realize what a treat it would be to be on the arm of such a pleasant, well-spoken, positive gentleman like you. Of course, it could get a little uncomfortable, what with the gun on your hip and the chip on your shoulder....

I am sorry to report that, at my lady-parts check-up yesterday, my doctor was not able to locate a band of rogue cells gathering forces to assault my cervical well-being. Keep your fingers crossed for next year.

Are you going to enter the python hunting contest? You can use the weapon of your choice?
(No snark- this is being run in South Central FL starting Jan 12)

No, not going. I try to stay away from drunk rednecks after dark armed with guns.
Have not checked into it, but a shotgun would probably be a better choice than a rifle. But I would keep a 9 with hollow points in case a gator decided to get involved.

Is it a contest, or are they just paid by the pelt?

Bought a "new" car today. It's a newer version of the Jag. Surprisingly my insurance went up only $6 (yeah SIX) dollars. Pretty cool huh?

Thanks. I'm always worried about insurance going up so six dollars is wonderful. And a major surprise. I almost fell over when I heard that. LOL

I just don't get it.

Law & Order
Woman is raped.
Rapist is a confidential informant with connections.
Threatens her is she tells anyone.
Which she does.
He sets her up for the murder of her boyfriend and gets her sent to jail awaitign trial.
Pulls strings to get a few people out of legal trouble in order for them to bear witness against her.
Skipping over the details of the rest of the show, the DA ended up having to cut a deal to drop the rape charges against him in order to get the chick out of jail and get murder charges fileed against him.

So she's out of jail. No murder charges. And he's pretty much a cooked goose on the murder. If it were me, I'd be thrilled. Yet she was unhappy that he was not goin gto get charged with her rape.

I saw that last night. I got that she was so upset over going to jail and her son being put in foster care, but these cops busted their butts for her and she didn't seem to understand how hard they were working.

And she seemed loopy a lot, spacy, like she was high or brain damaged a bit from drugs/alcohol/beatings.

That was a weird episode. Not a typical cookie cutter.

Well, the rape was a violent act against her plus she probably wasn't thinking right. Maybe the writers had an off day since it's just a TV show on not real life.

Watched Person of Interest. It was excellent tonight. Love that show. You gotta watch that. It's worth a small investment to get to know the characters. I won't give the details in cased someone Tivo'd it or plans to watch it later.

If he were going free on a technicality, I could understand being unhappy with that plea deal, but he's going away for a long time or even life, be glad he's off the streets for a long time.

Sure, but the reason I noted it is because its not the first time I've seen a story line like this. Seen others involving murder where murderer gets charged with murders x, y, & z, but bcause of some technicality, murder w goes uncharged and the family is upset cause THEIR loved one is not getting justice...even though murderer is getting consecuritve life sentences for the others.

News reports said that there was a $5000 prize for teh person who bagged the longest or brought in the most pythons, not sure if that is numerc or by weight. Apparently they are hard to find to kill. Contest is open for a month.
