    I just heard on the news that there was a shooting in a Ulster, NY mall. I have heard that there were 2 or 3 shooters. Also I have heard there is 8 people hurt.

    I just heard that there was only one gunman and only one person shot, and one hit with debris.

    The media believe (probably correctly) that big-spending consumers who advertisers want will pay more attention to a shooting in a mall than to a shooting in an urban neighborhood. On the other hand, I almost went through the roof several months ago when a TV station here mentioned some heinous crime in New Haven county. The city of New Haven has more than its share of crime, but much of the rest of the county is well-to-do suburban towns. The crime was in one of those, but the casual watcher heard "New Haven" connected to more "violent crime" and the perception of crime in the city was reinforced. The town where the crime occurred is known well enough that most people watching the news would have recognized its name.

    Ah, gotta love NY.

    Just recently two bodies were found in a trunk at my local train station, and the guy two doors up from me was arrested for innapropriate behaviour with a minor. And we moved here because it's supposed to be a GOOD neighborhood!
