rustic

(no subject)

On my walk today, I saw several flags flying at half-mast for the four RCMP officers who were killed a few days ago near Edmonton. The officers were all young men, under 30 years of age. The man who killed them (and then himself) had a long, violent criminal history. Why he wasn't in prison, I do not understand.

The wind came up suddenly, blowing grit into my eyes, and I hurried home.
