storytelling

I'm intrigued by the stories that make our local paper.

One news story I read this week was about a couple of women who entered a man's home and tried to rob him. The police chief said, "He was shocked. He left his door open and she walked right in." Just a thought: lock your damn door.

The second story made the front page. It concerned a robbery attempt at a small drug store. A man walked in, tried to rob the pharmacist, and several patrons grabbed him and wrestled him to the ground. So whose picture made the front page along with the story? The one women who walked in during the middle of the robbery and had no idea what was going on. Worse yet, that's what she was quoted as saying.
