There's too much shooting in my neighborhood.  I guess somebody got killed this afternoon.  This isn't the first time.  It's the damn crackhead apartment complex at the foot of the street.  My block is closed off, swarming with cops, and there appears to be a standoff.  This is beyond not cool. 

I bet it's related to the weird pounding noise Joel and I heard last night…we heard something that sounded like an aluminum baseball bat trying to hammer a railroad spike into the ground, followed by two gunshots.  There was other shooting earlier in the week.  I wish it would stop

This is the view from my front porch, right now.  Half the block is cordoned off.

I don't intend to cross it.  I don't intend to venture outside until tomorrow morning when I have to leave for work.  I hate that this is what is happening to my neighborhood and life.
