Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Entry for May 21, 2007

Today I read where a 24 year old man was stabbed to death yesterday (Sunday) with a most unusual weapon. Autopsy showed he died after being stabbed in the back of the neck with a house key. A 40 year old woman is being held by the Chicago Police as a "person of interest" in the killing.

Late last week three senior citizen males (age late 60s, early 70s) were walking in a forest preserve near here. There was an altercation of some sort with a younger male, who subsequently attacked all three seniors with a rock. One senior was killed, the other two seriously (but not critically) injured. Attacker has not been caught, described as a younger, thin male between 5'8'' and 6'0'' tall.

Gun control in Illinois is indeed working.

Thanks for listening,


James A. Zachary Jr.
