When the TeeWee news announcer this morning intoned that two teens had been capped in a drive-by shooting in Zionsville, it had about the same effect on the smooth flow of my train of thought as would driving down a highway in North Dakota and running over an alligator.
For those unfamiliar with our metro Naptown geography, Zionsville is a small town in the northern outer 'burbs with a hopelessly twee main street given over to antique shops and old Victorians and the surrounding environs given over to homes ranging from large to ostentatious where one can sleep in bucolic peace and quiet after a hard day of middle managementing in downtown Indy.
I blame that jazz music these kids are listening to these days. It makes them smoke marijuana and hang out with hoodlums and flappers.
UPDATE: The official story now is that Seth & Jared say they drove home to Zionsville from Indy after being capped out of the blue while they were sitting in their car all minding their own business and not doing anything wrong, honest, officer.
