The Musings of

Something full of magic, religion, bullsh*t.

Well, I'm not even sure that's a crime anymore. There've been a lot of changes in the law.

With all of the stories detailing the aftermath of Katrina, this one is my favorite. In it, the reporter explains how a man in Hattiesburg, MS shot his sister in the head over a bag of ice. That's ice as in "frozen water" not "crystal meth."

No doubt this is a tragedy, but the last sentence was what caught my eye: "The shooting is being treated like a homicide, according to [Police Chief] Wynn."

Once again, I'm glad to say that despite all of the destruction and confusion riding Katrina's wake, it's still considered homicide when you shoot someone in the head fighting over ice.
