This morning a woman was murdered four blocks east of our house. I don't know the details--the info released on WWL-TV's site is sketchy--but the speculations on the Bywater/Marigny forum scare me.
Now, I am NOT an alarmist, but I must admit that this has me shaken. I am home alone today, and I think that maybe I'll run some errands away from home until I know more. I may also drive by Sweet Olive B&B to find out what I can do (if anything) to help.
