Don’t Go Back to Rockville


There were five apparently random killings between Wed evening and Thu morning in Montgomery County, Maryland. Police suspect the shootings were all perpetrated by the same person, a skilled gunman using a high-powered rifle. This is some crazy shit — the killings took place just a few miles away from where I grew up, in Gaithersburg, MD. Heck, I was even technically a Gaithersburg High Trojan. Believe me, it’s not the kind of town that is accustomed to finding itself in the national news. On the other hand, if the killer(s) turn out to be insane, right-wing and redneck Montgomery County residents, I would somehow not be very surprised.
