Omaha mall shooting

My grandparents have called. They're safe. They had been to that mall earlier in the day -- of course they had. Westroads was the mall of my childhood; my family's in and out of there for all of December. I have no reason to think that any of our family friends in particular would have been there, and as my grandparents left the mall to go to a friend's funeral, I expect the odds are lower, not higher, that someone close to me would have been there.

The next TV announcer who asks whether camo is normal in Omaha (answer: yes, moron, it's a military town) is going to get my mom's boot to his butt, but only because she's faster than me.
