Missing details…

This is  how sloppy  Associated Press has become.  You don’t stab with a machete — you slash.  Many types don’t even have a point.  The Metropolitan Police don’t think the attack against the policemen is “related to terrorism”,  but there is no mention of ethnicity,  which does have some bearing on the impetus.   We are left to wonder what the attacker said during the attack or afterwards.   All we know is that he refused to stop,  then attacked the police.   What else was AP told that it failed to pass on to its readers?

Don’t despair tonight…

if your area won’t offer a good view of the Perseids meteor shower.   You can simply tune into the NASA Meteor Watch Facebook page for a  live camera feed  from Alabama starting around 6 p.m. Pacific Time on August 12th.   My locale will have mostly clear skies but the heat and humidity will be torture,  so I’ll be heading to the NASA feed after i’ve tossed some goodies over the fence for the small black and gray cat trying to establish a territory.
