Sounds like someone might have gone postal at the office, which happens to be above the train station. At any rate, the commuters are all stuch there while the police are looking for this guy in the building.

Extremely doubtful, since the shooting appears to be on the 38th-floor of an attached office building rather than the station itself.

But thanks for getting the knee-jerking out of the way.

We occasionally get freezing fog down here in NC. It's strange, walking outside and everything looks like the inside of a freezer that needs defrosting, lol.

World Nut Daily correspondent Jerome Corsi is reporting that it is a planned rampage by drug-smuggling illegal Chinese Spanish NASCAR tollroad workers of the Buildaburger Masonic Lodge.

It's been miserable, hasn't it? This getting up at 6am with 2 degree temps and stumbling out to the chicken coop really, really sucks. I guess it STILL beats being a chicken though, LOL!

The weekend weather looks tolerable though, so there's Hope! :)

Eyewitness on 4th floor saw one victim with shoulder wound, and an additional five or six stretchers on the way up. Additionally noted that firemen were bringing axes. Don't know if that's standard for a situation like this. SWAT team also on the scene.

You'd think with our Dem administration, we'd already be pulled back to Oak Brook, at least. But remember, Daley's dad wanted to shoot looters during the riots in the 60s. Maybe we should put Daley in charge of Iraq. LOL!

Our retirement dreams are Hawaii or Alaska. Guess which way I lean? ;)

Shooting looters on sight is the time honored method of nipping it in the bud. Failure to do so is just another example of how soft hearted liberalism means freedom for criminals to prey on the law abiding. Failure to nip looting in the bud leads to rioting and out of control lawlessness as in L.A. and New Orleans. Hey, maybe I could go along with rubber bullets, but you have to crack down hard whatever you do.

I hear island living gets tiresome & is more expensive than the mainland. If I was forced to choose between the two though, it would be a no brainer. Aloha, here I come.

My ex used to talk about retiring somewhere up north. Did I mention he's my ex?

An old net bud just moved about as far south in the world as you can move. She's in like, the Antarctic Circle & we started talking about the weather. I mean, when you're seeing icebergs floating by, you'd think dang, that's cold. So anyway, she told me the temp range in her area is between zero and forty. But hold on to your hat, cuz we're talking Celsius, so the range of temps there are from about thirty two to a hundred plus.
