Angela works at a newspaper in Everett, on the street where the tanker blew up. She posts photos her boss took and notes:

Some Everett high-school students learned yesterday what happens when you toss French fries into a busy street when seagulls are around: The seagulls swoop down to eat them, then get run over by a Masshole. Angela posts the grim photo:
