It makes sense to omit not life threatening shootings from now on. If it's not in the Jamaica Plain Facebook, it didn't happen. (I mean tonight's Dorchester shooting.)

I just wanted to come to UH and wax romantic about walking to Harry's during the first snowfall of the season. Dammit. Like Skynyrd said, dump 'em people to the bottom of the sea.
