    Pointing out all these suicides and murders is in very poor taste, especially since some occured so recently.

  • AMF

    Oh please, get over yourself, this is an interesting historical panorama of death in the neighborhood……

  • GHB

    Oh, STFU!

  • AEB

    “From ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night….”

    Who’d-a-thunk that BH was Mayhem Central to the degree it was…and is? Maybe it’s the small-town phenomenon in which violence is inversely proportionate to population size….

    Doesn’t bother me so much but I can see where this would rank up there with Mrs. Fink’s rat photo in terms of bad taste..

  • AEB

    Can someone please explain how violent crime is in bad taste?

    Is it the context–this blog–that, for some, makes it so?

    Or is it the fact that Homer is enumerating examples of it without the usual tsk-tsking pieties?

    In any case, it’s Halooooooween!

    AEB, You’d better not be giving out raisins this year…
