Wow, a glut of links after nothing for two hours!

And they didn't even CLOSE THE FARKING STORE?!?!?

Hey, somebody finally woke up.
Good morning, Sunshine!
2002-08-09 02:32:24 PM  
Wet floor, indeed!
2002-08-09 02:33:20 PM  
Heck, compared to Fort Bragg, that's nothing.

Seems appropriate. There needs to be a Kentucky Tag.

In something completely unrelated to this article, where did the "In Communist Russia..." or "In Communist China..." comments come from?

K-Mart is behind this......
2002-08-09 02:38:42 PM  
They must have some really good sales there that people are willing to kill for. I didn't realize moonshine was THAT popular...
2002-08-09 02:39:04 PM  
Aw, damn, I was starting to enoy picking on the losers who were biatching about the lack of links.

In Kentucky, moonshine is not only popular, to some it is a way of life...

Mop and bucket man to Aisle 10

You mean there aint no 'shine in Chicago. That does it, I staying put.
2002-08-09 02:47:20 PM  
I think it's all the Ale 8 they drink there. Makes people crazy, you know.
2002-08-09 02:48:53 PM  
Aw, I was enjoying the loser biatching about the people biatching about the lack of links.

Hmm... season must have opened early this year.

I went to one of the K-Marts going out of business. it looked 100% ghetto. I'm surprised there weren't police sirens in the background, tagging, and homeless people sleeping in boxes.

A shooting at a K-mart does not surprise me. I'm betting some gangstas were having a turf war over control of the electronics department.
2002-08-09 03:17:02 PM  
Well, at least the cats were OK. They could have died locked up in that car.
2002-08-09 03:18:44 PM  
The shooting was at a Walmart, not a Kmart. If it was at a Kmart we would have shot back :P
2002-08-09 03:36:49 PM  
Wonder if the guns were purchased at Walmart?
2002-08-09 03:44:10 PM  
Perhaps they should hand these out at the door, leaving no hands free to lock and load-

I does all my score-settlin' down to the Wal-Mart...that's where the ammo-nition is!
2002-08-09 03:58:43 PM  
Darn, shoulda read that better. eh, Kmart shootings will start to happen, that is, if school wasn't starting so soon.
2002-08-09 04:08:26 PM  
So why did he pick Wal-Mart to shoot himself? Did he want to sacrifice himself to the god of everyday low prices?

Eeech, that doesn't sound right. I just got done reading American Gods and it shows.

Good ol' Clark Co.

When I lived there it was 4th in the nation for highest percentage of teen pregnacy. But comparing it to Chicago, NewYork, and L.A. doesn't do it justice. Damn fine place for a kid to raise a kid!

In other news, Wal Mart is rolling back prices on Kevlar vests.
2002-08-09 06:13:16 PM  
I'm goin with the Wal-Mart worker exploitation angle. Yup!
2002-08-09 06:54:58 PM  
It was all collateral damage. They were actually trying to hit this guy:
