I opened up the paper on the website today and saw this story, and could not believe it! I am in shock! A gun related homicide in Washington DC? WOW, what is this world coming to? Northeast DC is turning very bad in recent years, I may sell my house and move to Southeast to run from the violence!

Isn't there a twist to make it interesting? This is just the same old same old. Maybe his mother cares. Maybe not.

Anything with an "East" behind it in DC, is a terrible place to live.
