My Valentine's Day musings seem, suddenly, to be a part of the distant past. On Tuesday night, my parents' home was broken into by a crazed man with a gun. He was seeking money from their caregiver, a friend of his. He fired the gun, hitting no one, fortunately, and then fled. The police are looking for him.
A 22 caliber hand gun can be purchased online with 53 dollars and an adult signature upon delivery.
