    Gee WNEP, I didn’t see a single article about the muzzy shooting up Harrisburg yesterday. Shot at three police and wounded a trooper. Then they sent him to be with Allah.
    Probably because you’re a CNN affiliate?

    “Police say the thief handed the teller a note demanding money.” That’s all you have to do to rob a bank here?? wow. I’d like to demand some things. Think i’ll pass a note to my boss demanding a raise. What’s the worst that can happen?
