Not sure if this is appearing on national news, and I guess I won’t find out for another hour or so, but if you have seen http://www.wmur.com/news/14737868/detail.html?treets=man&tml=man_break&ts=T&tmi=man_break_1_12260411302007 — yes, Rochester, NH, is where we live. I found out about this when attempting to run a couple of errands downtown — pick up a finished cross stitch, and drop some sheets off at a local laundromat (we don’t have a dryer, and it’s below freezing outside).

All the local stations have been running this story, and the inaccuracies I’ve heard — our fanciest restaurant described as a “bar,” a 72-hour drinking bout on the part of the hostage-taker described as a 48-hour drinking bout, his “being Known to police” (as in, “Oh, yeah, this guy has a major criminal record”) being the result of having grown up with half the cops on the force — well, it’s been an Education, in terms of just how accurate the media is. But you already knew that, right? 😉 I mean, look what they do to Orthodoxy….

I should add that no one seems to know quite why he picked on Hillary’s campaign headquarters, but it seems perfectly clear to me that surely, he is of the opinion that the fewer Hillary supporters there are in the world, the better. Not that I would advocate this particular method of reducing their numbers, but I have been truly astonished by the number of brainless idiots — I mean, Hillary supporters there are in these here parts. My secret hope is that this will convince the Democratic Party that this woman is way too controversial to be electable, and they will hand the nomination to someone with at least marginal brains. (Naming no names here…) But I’m not too convinced that that will actually occur.

Meanwhile, I sure hope I can get my sheets taken care of tomorrow. Sigh.
