Two nights ago I was awakened by the quick gunshots a couple blocks north and east of my house.

This morning we awakened to news of a seven-death shotgunning spree at 21st and Republican, in our old neighborhood.

Today we’re hosting an open house. Please check your firearms with me at the door.

UPDATE: For some reason, this failed to post. Viv ambushed me with a 40th birthday party. Manuel took some cameraphone pix as well as some Polaroids on really old, screwed-up film.

I’ll add these when I can.
