The weather is changing, which could be effecting people. Domestic violence is common everywhere and the economy is bad which might exacerbate things. But, to us, it's more reasonable that these two tales are simply more proof of Armageddon.

1.A woman was shot Monday around 2:15 p.m. at an Ochsner clinic at 850 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie. Authorities were seeking her ex-husband as suspect 45 minutes later.

And today we read:
Kerry Bruce missed his court date Monday afternoon where he was supposed to enter a plea on charges of domestic violence against his wife. Authorities say that's because he was at a Metairie clinic shooting her. Bruce, 45, of New Orleans, led deputies on a 30-minute manhunt through a Metairie neighborhood before a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office helicopter flushed him out of hiding in a backyard.

This one here. We just like the idea of someone taping knives to their wrists:

2. Deputies went to the home of Lance Webb Monday shortly before noon after receiving a tip that he was wanted on domestic violence charges in New Orleans. No one answered the door, but he drove up a short time later. Deputies stopped his car in the street, and Webb bolted into the house, locking the front door behind him. A standoff at Webb's home in the 2600 block of Chalona Drive then began. Throughout the afternoon negotiators stood on the front porch, talking to Webb through a window. Webb had apparently taped a knife to each wrist and was threatening to kill himself
