We get a call from a friend who is moving out of town, like everyone else it seems these days. He, his wife, and baby are going out West.
"They won't let us out side," he says. "While they're investigating."
"On that same corner?" we ask.
"It's that same corner. So its got to be that same beef."
"Well," we say, "At least your moving."
"There were even more shots than last time," he says.
