Late as Usual

1) On Thursday, December 25, 2008 at around 6:05 A.M., the victim and his
girlfriend became involved in an argument at a home in the 6200 block
of Wainwright Street. During this argument, the victim's girlfriend
stabbed the victim in the chest with a kitchen knife.

2) A group of gunmen in the 3700 block of Annunciation Street shot a 3-year-old boy in the arm and chest Christmas evening, according to the New Orleans Police Department. Toddler was riding in a car with his grandmother. About 8:47 p.m., boy's grandmother passed an apartment complex and tried to back the car up. Suddenly, at least one gunman in a group of five to 10 young men in the area shot at the car. Gunfire hit the boy in the arm and grazed his chest.

3) Also, early today, someone shot a 25-year-old man inside his eastern New Orleans apartment [...] about 1:20 a.m. this morning in the 6700 block of Tara Lane in eastern New Orleans. Once he returned to his apartment for the night, the 25-year-old victim noticed it had been broken into. Suddenly, a man ran out, firing a pistol. The victim was shot seven times. He was taken to University Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

Happy Boxing Day. Pinter died. He said this:

"I ought not to speak about the dead because the dead are all over the place."

And was probably right.
