excitement continues, sort of  
There are still cop cars and evidence vans outside, 8 hours later. "A single, possible double homicide", according to the cop that is stationed closest, and the street is a network of orange yellow tape crisscrossing as it blocks of paths of evidence. One of them apparently died about 30 feet from my front door; I couldn't see it last night, because cop cars were in the way, but there's a rather pathetic pair of sunglasses sitting in front of the neighbor's driveway, marked with a little yellow evidence marker, and spiraling out from it a dark trail of blood that wanders thickly from gutter to sidewalk and back, and ends in a dribbling narrowing blankness that is creepily suggestive.

I'm stuck here for the moment, as no one can leave.

I'm sorry. I'm glad you're safe, but having your home environment turn into such a horrible crime scene like that and then not being able to get away from it to take a break sounds...uneasy is not nearly a strong enough word.

Well, I suppose I can leave, myself, as a cop already took my statement last night, but I can't move my car until they are done. And really, driving somewhere to have a nice brunch sounds nice right now!

Yikes. Hope they get things cleaned up soon.

AIEEE. I'm glad you're okay, but how disturbing. Hope you get to leave soon.

May that be all the excitement your neighborhood ever sees. Hope you get to take off before long.

Bloody hell. I'm glad you're okay, even if you have to hunker down for a bit.

I'm glad you're okay!

Usually our excitement is caused by visitor stupidity (stepping over the guardrail at a cliff, canoeing in frigid water on a windy day, fleeing a bank robbery in Iowa by driving into a place with a police force and only 5 entrances and exits, and oh by the way, did I mention the wild animals? Hungry wild animals?), but apparently this guy has been seen in the vicinity: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten/fugitives/fisher.htm. Scary.

Did you ever find out more details about what happened? What a scary thing.

They arrested one of the stab-ees as the murderer of the other guy. Gang related, oh joy!

I should have guessed. So many of these things are 'gang-related'.
