    Yesterday the Washington Post reported that the Metropolitan Police had announced that the murder rate for the first half of 2009 was the lowest it has been in years.

    Gee whiz. Six months. Isn't that about how long the Heller decision has been in full effect? Wow. What with all the apoplectic bloviating about all the "new guns" coming into the city and the certain-to-follow reddening of the Potomac and Anacostia with blood, didn't you expect to see articles about graveyards running out of space and crematoria burning out due to overwork? Gee whiz. Guess it didn't happen. In fact, the opposite has occurred. Oh pity the poor crime reporters. Slow news days are a drag without a juicy murder, and what with people able to defend themselves in their homes, juicy murders just got rarer. Now if D.C. had Virginia-style open carry and "shall issue" concealed, well, hell folks. Them crime writers might wind up covering pothole repair or something.

    Well, I guess they'll have to accept it. Nobody gives out Pulitzers for writing a series about sewer backups in rainstorms. Too bad. NOT.

    You are so right! Sorry for this slip - proximity to big brother in NOVA is screwing with my brain and making me say things like that. Shame on me!
