What the Hell is going on around here?
What the fuck is going on in this town? First we have the two hostile crowd incidents in the past two weeks, followed by a shooting at Folklife, another on First Hill, and now one in Ravenna. At Cafe Racer, of all places!? Grief, I can't imagine a more laid-back, more friendly place than Cafe Racer-- that's where the Rubyists have their weekly Rails meetings on Monday nights and we all overload the WiFi and talk shop and I teach more about Coffeescript than I learn about Rails, all while eating great burgers with limp, greasy fries and awesome beer. What the Hell made someone just open up like that?

I hope it's just a statistical anomaly. But it's surely an upsetting statistical anomaly.

All such shootings are statistical anomalies.

It bothered me the first time I heard the Ave got bad around 2001 where there were stabbings there and someone tried to open the door on my sibling's car.

Plus, unemployment levels haven't been great for some time now and poverty is linked with crime...
