What a wonderful world

Not that I'm opposed to people getting what they want, and hurting people to get it, but this is getting really old. In the last few weeks, the two closest commercial buildings to my house have been robbed at gunpoint. This morning I woke up to the sound of the News Chopper 9 helicopter hovering above my house and street. Wondering if the UMB bank at 79th & Wornall had been robbed again, I turned on the news to actually find that someone at the Kicks 66 gas station had been shot (right across the street from UMB). Yeah, so this all leaves me feeling pretty good about our neighbourhood, or, perhaps - 'hood' as I've come to realise today.

After 2 shootings in the last few weeks within view of your house,

Do you -

a) Continue living where you are
b) Sell up before you get shot
c) Pretend that nothing happened
d) Turn yourself in

What is up with KC?! I just had my CD player stolen from my car in my own driveway. Not as serious as shootings, but what is the deal?

It is realize not realise in the US buddy! Give up your shoddy spelling practices; don't be scared of the Z.

Time to move closer to the inner-city, Andy... There's not as much crime here. ;)

Hey, as a matter of fact, there is a house for sale across the street from us. Plus, the Pattens' house -- and one two houses from them -- is for sale as well (just a couple of blocks down from our place).

a) Don't you think that your options A and C are pretty much the same? I think I need to work with you on your test-writing skills.

2)I think you should move to Leawood and buy Candra a Lexus.

c)Don't you think that your options A and C are pretty much the same? I think I need to work with you on your test-writing skills.

42) Philip, we get it. You're not a Republican. You're freaking giant, crazy looking, bald, wild-eyed pacifist.
