    wow... 2 murders in the bull city last night and it's not even front page news. are you seriously suggesting that the DMV computer glitch story is a higher priority?

    ok .... details we are waiting for...... The victims names, how they were killed, where they were killed, why they were killed, how many doughnuts were consumed on the investigations. It would be nice for them to let us know what they have here because it puts people more on alert when they are uninformed but know something bad just happened.
