The news of Kansas City, MO first homicide was not the only bit of crummy news today. People started off the new year hurting themselves and others in multiple ways. The following is a list of news stories that greeted web and newspaper readers and TV viewers this day: woman found dead in KCK apartment...fire claims five lives in northern MO...SUV crashes into house in Praire Village...7 left homeless by KCMO fire that is deemed arson...three dead, child injured in murder-suicide...bank robbery suspect ID'ed by wife...thieves clean out Iraq vet's apartment...mystery continues around KCK woman found dead and frozen in car.
Not to stick my head in the sand but I think I'll skip the 10 pm news tonight.

What's this blog like?
Well, this blog is like...sitting around the kitchen table with friends and family...like a game of Rook with friends...sitting on the porch or deck or driveway with friends and neighbors...come on grab a drink and have a seat! You're in Ruskin Heights, or Terrace Lake Gardens or Stratford Estates for example. We might talk about anything--the new people moving in down the street, the economy, the Chiefs, crime, the mayor, health care, national new, world news, religion, cars, politics...careful now! Wide ranging, opinionated, but always respectful. In the end, we are all neighbors.
