I love my shower radio. Why? Because it allows me to hear important news stories in the morning, the most important of which might be Los Angeles’ current 48-hour homicide moratorium. That’s right. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, residents of the greater Los Angeles area are being asked not to kill anyone.
I believe it was one of Dr. King’s finest speeches in which he proclaimed, “Consider not murdering anyone in two day chunks – it makes it less overwhelming.”
The news story ended with this: “The homicide moratorium expires at 10:01pm tomorrow night.”
And then, back to murdering!
