    Twas a crazy week in Iowa

    Started off with a shootout outside of Sigourney. A real estate agent gets gunned down on the job, somebody knifes a man with MS to death, and a cop uses deadly force against a man in Nevada. On top of all this, a class 3 kill storm is forming hours after a class 2 kill storm rips through the state.



    Anybody who thinks Iowa is boring should come and visit in April sometime.

    I don't like the sound of that "class 3".


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

    You forgot one headline. An officer was shot to death by some mentally insane guy.

    Also a kid from Johnston's boat capsized and he's now 'presumed drowned'.

    Kind of a crappy news week all around.
