Sometimes we are cooking breakfast. Or coming home from work, putting our bags on the couch and taking off our boots, when we hear a story about a murder. We think, "There's one for tomorrow," but then we search our sources and find nothing. We check the radio's website. We listen in the truck on the way to St. Roch. Nothing.
Are we hearing things? Do we secretly wish we had something to post? Most likely, we are developing some sort of socio-psychic connection with the police blotter that allows us to predict upcoming homicides ala Philip K. Dick? That or we just know the statistics.
Only time will tell:
