Quote Du Jour:
"He told me he needed a ride, so he kidnapped me and stole the truck. He said he wanted to catch a plane. And he said they wanted to kill him. Don't ask me who they is." (Hostage after his release)

Okay, this will be short and sweet for now. It's almost 2 in the morning and I'm very tired. I spent the day covering a shooting and hostage situation for the newspaper that I am temporarily working for. It was a pretty dramatic little deal and it lasted nearly 10 hours. Needless to say, I'm feeling a smidgen drained. As much as I would like to reflect on the situation... and probably come up with an analogy or two to make it connect with my life, my brain just won't allow that at the moment. Don't worry... I'll be back with details later today or sometime during the weekend. (0159)
