The morbid news of the past 48 hours:
A Seattle family of six, including a three year old and a six year old, are murdered Christmas Eve
A seventeen year old kid is mauled to death in a San Fran zoo
A young girl in San Antonio is killed trying out her new Christmas bike
34 die in Nigerian pipeline explosion
Three die in Egypt building collapse
Two women in Omaha Nebraska are killed, found in basement, their daughter raped and assaulted
Five die in Belgian copter crash
Sure stuff like this happens every day, but when misfortunes such as murder, accidental death and unusual cruelty occur on or around Christmas, don't we all take a little more notice?
Where was the Big Guy? Too much egg nog?
