killer headline

I like, featuring the Astronomy Picture of the Day,  other attractive daily stuff, and First Headlines, which invariably mixes the momentous, the alarming and the weird.  Today we see this one:  “Man shot to death with crossbow in Toronto library – Suspect arrested in what police describe as ‘definitely a unique case’. ”  Some guy did indeed shoot another guy in the back with a crossbow in Main Street Library in a Toronto suburb.  Kids and moms saw it because the elementary school in the neighborhood had just let out.

A more recently breaking headline reveals that that the murder victim was the bowman’s father.  The odds are that thereon hangs a sad and sordid tale.

On a more edifying note, today’s Astronomy Picture is M33, the star-formation-spangled Pinwheel Galaxy.
