01 January 2010
The festive, celebratory gunfire began a tad early this year. According to www.time.gov it was 11:59:20 P.M. on December 31, 2009 when the shooting started. Much of it was confined to west of Central Parkway, and to Avondale. It's not clear to yours truly whether it was police intervention, or lack of ammunition that curtailed the excitement, but the shooting was over by 12:20:00 A.M., January 1, 2010. The recreational shooting, that is. Our annual firefight with the cosmos. Homicidal shooting, encouraged by our national right to bear arms --- arms unimagined by the Constitution's authors --- will resume within the hour.
