    Whether the victim did or did not have a valid carry permit is almost as relevant as if he had a valid drivers license, paid up taxes, and an ACT score. But, at least that story is clear about who was the victim of the crime.

      Curiously, the media fabulists seldom mention whether the perpetrator has a license or even lawfully owns the firearm used during commission of their crimes.

    It’s Tuesday, so Sister Mary Grace is only going to point out the rather confusing word order of this sentence:

    “Deputies caught a second suspect who fled the scene when he crashed several streets away….”

    It’s still raining outside my little house. Accuweather’s forecasts should be impounded for unreliability. They change them on an almost hourly basis. At least, we’re getting rain so that the tall corn will grow. Sam Naomi would be pleased.
