• Arizona cities buried in rare snowstorm as much of U.S. enjoys balmy weather: "Parts of Arizona will remain buried under snow Monday as a surprising late-winter onslaught paralyzed travel and closed schools. Yet much of the eastern two-thirds of the country will continue to enjoy unseasonably warm temperatures, a day before spring officially starts."
• 4 killed in shooting at French Jewish school: "A gunman opened fire on a Jewish school in southern France Monday, killing four people - the third shooting in the area in 10 days. The shooting in the city of Toulouse left a teacher and three children dead, including a 3-year-old, said local prosecutor Michel Valet. A fourth child was injured."
• Gas prices up for 10th straight day: "The national average price for a gallon of gasoline rose for the 10th straight day on Monday to $3.842. That is now only about 6.6% below the record high of $4.114 from July 2008."
• UPS expands its reach with $6.8 billion deal: "United Parcel Service is expanding its global reach by agreeing to acquire rival delivery service company TNT Express in a $6.8 billion deal. Atlanta-based UPS (UPS, Fortune 500) will pay about $12.50 in cash per share for the Dutch company, an increase of more than 50% since negotiations were first announced on Feb. 16, the companies said Monday."
• Many agonizing moments in NCAA tournament bracketland: "Four days and four dozen hours of tournament basketball, and not one buzzer-beater was willing to fall. Where have you gone, Bryce Drew — or even Danero Thomas or Matt Howard? The 2012 bracket’s would-be heroes have hit everything but net."

I know the neighborhood well. There was brief ntemion of the incident in the news but not much. I think it smells bad too.Truth is, the neighborhood there is terrible. Though the news reported that there have been no homicides there this year is not very comforting. It is only May. And there was a homicide there last fall. Hardly anything to brag about.I was assaulted there last fall by three African Americans and barely escaped with my life. Its a terrible neighborhood. The police don't put plain clothes cops in good neighborhoods. They news reported the cops were part of an anti robbery unit. Ha. They can't even prevent homicides and violent assaults in crowded public places let alone prevent robberies. Even worse, the cops are not even safe themselves. The news reported that two of the cops were shot also.Bottom line is this. Adams Morgan is not a safe place. The cops are not even safe there. I stopped going there last year after I was assaulted. It has been overrun by ghetto hoodlums and soon nobody will go there.

Dear Piers, It is April 14. Flagstaff, Arizona just recieved another foot of snow today. March snow storms in the Arizona mountains are common...NOT rare. Though this may be small potatoes, it is just another case of the media not doing their homework before making a report.
