  1. Prediction: the more jitteringly paranoid among us will soon be up in arms in an air-clawing rage in the comment section in reference to:

    A) Various hypothesis on the perpetrator’s skin color;
    B) Once the shade of skin is known, a ranking scale of how prone the individual was to commit the crime based on melanin levels will be offered;
    C) Grandiose political theories on how the East Bay has been designed to be a dumping ground for some type of heinous insane asylum of criminal syndicates;
    D) Lastly, how Antioch’s influence is trickling over into Disco Bay like some sort of flu, passed along genetically by those with different ancestors than those of the members of the status quo.

  2. Nick and Thoth where is disco bay? The shooting happened in Discovery Bay and the victim mistakingly thought it was an explosion at first. What’s so hard to comprehend amigos? Are you both that under informed or was it just a juvenile need to comment on things you know nothing about?

    • Jesse, please do us all a favor and slide your head back into your sphincter. Apparently the fresh air and sunlight are getting to you.
