Fourth Homicide of the Year....That's One Every 19 Days....

While we debate the merits of creating a National Sailing Hall of Fame, we are on our way to becoming Murder Capital USA. The fourth murder of year on day 76, or about one per every nineteen days, means we are on track for 18 or 19 for the year, or more than double last year's record!
