Yet another mass killing. Empire State Building ...
Eight shot. Shooter dead.
Guns guns guns.
Mayor Bloomberg will go berserk.
I have the telly on now. Just coming up for 2100 so the main news in a minute or so.
Gunman killed. It's No2 after Breivik so I'll leave it for now.
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."
Any chance it's not a white guy? It'd be nice if just one of these nut jobs wasn't white....

Unfortunately four people have died and others injured. No description of the attacker I'm afraid, Beavis. The police say that it's not terrorism related. Gunman killed as I said before. It's rush hour in New York. That's it. So, still a developing story.

Just to add - not long ago a taxi driver, a 'mild mannered, guy next door, who would have thought it?' type went on a shooting rampage at the edge of England's Lake District.
I might as well mention that (caveat) according to the tabloids, he was a regular visitor to Pattaya and hung out with a group called 'The Taxi Boys' - none of whom were mass killers or anything.
Anyway, the story was that he was a bit of a nutter around this certain go-go dancer. Obsessive, jealous. They'd tell this guy that she'd gone to see her parents and all that if he wandered in.
Sorry to disappoint, guys--I was at home, although I'm in this area almost everyday.
I see Amis's book got slated in your neck of the woods. I can't say I was surprised.
Have a look at this. You did cross my mind when I saw it!
