The purple dot (you can click the pic so you can see it better) is where I grew up. The red star is where a guy died last night after being hit by a stray bullet.
A stray bullet. In Sherman Oaks.
I can see this happening in my current neighborhood. But Sherman Oaks is unbelievable. To quote a song from my youth:
Walkin' down the street, smoggy-eyed
Looking at the sky, starry-eyed
Searchin' for the place, weary-eyed
Crying in the night, teary-eyed
Don't you know that it's true
That for me and for you
The world is a ghetto
What a way to launch this new version of MsGeek.Org. Sheesh...
