Hi Everyone, So while I was on Facebook last night arguing the finer points of William Morris textile designs the primary, it turned out there was a mass shooting in Kzoo. I just this moment learned about it from a local paper and my partner learned about it at almost exactly the same time when he got a note from a colleague in Boston. We’re both wtf and in shock. We didn’t hear sirens or anything.
Apparently it was totally random (hard to believe) and
the seventh person to die was a 14-year-old girl. [EDIT: apparently she’s gravely injured but alive.] As of now, I don’t think I know anyone who was killed.
Not much else to say. This is horrible news, and I guess thanks to the NRA it’s also our new normal. Thanks to the people who asked after me and other Kzoo Juicers in Adam’s thread last night. I feel bad following up AL’s lovely, springy, flowery Sunday morning post with this.
