Thursday morning I heard on the radio, "blah blah something parking lot blah Bennington blah officer shooting."
"What was that?" I thought, "I drive on Bennington on the way to work." I reached for the device that lets me rewind the radio but I couldn't find it because it DOESN'T EXIST even though there's one for the TV and the CD player. (Bogus.)
When I turned on to Bennigton later that morning I thought, "I wonder if I can figure out where the shooting took place. Slim chance of that, though, Bennington's a long road, and for all I know they were talking about Jordan Bennington, the Blues goalie, and ... hey... check out all these police cars outside that parking lot."
And truly, there were dozens of police cars, all lights flashing by the parking lot entrance, and there was even police tape across the parking lot entrance. It was a show of force, or perhaps a celebration, considering the the police won this one.
