5 nothing good ever happens after 2 a.m.
there's a new big bad in town. apparently a whole gaggle of them who run about at 3 in the morning punching drunk guys in the face and stealing their cell phones. this started a few days ago, but it was only this morning that the newscasters took to the street corners in earnest, setting up their cameras for the 5:30 broadcast so that as i biked by, i caught a wisp of a report in which my neighborhood was pronounced "a sporadic volcano of deadly violence." yeah, that's what every girl wants to hear. that she's set up house in the foothills of pompeii.
