A Mass Shooting on Mother's Day? Where is the media this time?

So down in the fabulous city of New Orleans yesterday, there was a mass shooting that injured at least 19 people, many of whom were children. It doesn't seem to be making all the headlines on any of the big national news stations. Nineteen people shot. Several children shot. At a public parade. On Mother's Day.

Odd. Sounds pretty newsworthy to me. At least maybe 75% as newsworthy as the last one the media and governmental flunkies found so interesting.

I just can't seem to figure out why no one would be treating this one like the tragedy it would appear to be.

Can anyone help me figure it out?

Ice Maker Repair

We have a small ice maker that Mona uses for work. It's been running well for about 8 months. It died last week.

I disassembled the unit and found that the part of the trough that hooks to the motor had disintegrated. A bit of thought and a few dollars at LeBlanc's True Value and we're back in business.
