Murder Rains

According to the New York Times, if you like avoiding murder as much as the next guy, you may want to consider doing the majority of your outdoor tasks on rainy days. That’s right, thanks to some bored delinquents researchers, we now know that murder rates go down when precipitation goes up.

Why they felt that this was necessary research to do is beyond reason. People don’t go out when it rains because that’s just plain stupid. No research required. Traffic, accidents, bad roads, pneumonia, lightning. These are all things that are more likely to kill you than some random psychopath assassin. Besides, I stay home to keep my kicks dry.

Newspapers have turned into that old guy in the trench coat outside your local food and liquor spot. The dude that’s either soothsaying, selling you something illicit or just being flat out outlandish in hopes of entertaining you and making some change. That hobo that gets all the news late, who’ll probably remind you that gas prices are ridiculous later today as if the shit just happened.

Yeah. That weirdo. Almost makes you wish he’d go out on a sunny day and meet his fate.
