|No Person Got Shot,
Stabbed, Slashed, or Murdered in NYC Monday
By Esther Zuckerman | The Atlantic Wire – Wed, Nov 28, 2012
It may be a small — or, rather, nonexistent — number, but it's a heartening statistic: there were no shootings, stabbings, slashings, or murders in New York City between around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night and 11:20 a.m. Tuesday morning, the NYPD said, according to NY1. Police can't remember the last time that happened.
We should point out that Monday wasn't entirely free from gunshots. Per the New York Daily News, a teen accidentally shot himself in the thigh Monday.
The murder rate has been so low this year that the 2012 murder count for New York will likely end up hovering around 400. Last year 515 people were deemed homicide victims, according to the NYPD, and that number included 27 people who either weren't assaulted in that year or whose deaths weren't deemed homicides until that year.
That said, it's not all good news for crime in the city. In October Graham Rayman of the Village Voice wrote that "for the first time in 20 years, New York City might record an overall rise in crime." Rayman explained that while the homicide rate drops "other crime indicators shows the opposite." Looking at the week between November 12 through 18, total crime was up by 3.31 percent in the city compared to 2011.
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 11/28/12 - "Apology to Spouse":
Apology Letter To Spouse - PRICELESS!
I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights.
I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing me too hard when you want something.
I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy.
All I want is for
you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season.
Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights!
Thank you for that heart-felt apology. I don't often get an apology from you, and I truly appreciate it. I, too, felt bad about the argument and wanted to apologize. I realize that I can sometimes be a little pushy. I will try to respect your feelings from now on. Thank you for taking the time to hang the Christmas lights for me. It really means a lot. In the spirit of giving, I washed your truck for you; and now I am off to the mall.
I love you too!
Have a great day!
|Thanks, Dools - that's priceless!|

http://www.ajokeaday.com - 11/28/12:
|A couple was having
a party at their house. An hour before the party the woman found out
that she still needed escargots, so she sent her husband out to get it.
He was walking to the supermarket and he figured he had lots of time, so he stopped at the bar on the way.
An hour and a half later he looked at his watch and realized that the party had already started. He quickly ran to the market, bought the snails and ran home.
He tried to sneak into the kitchen without his wife seeing him, but at that moment his wife came out.
He quickly threw the snails on the floor and said, "Come on guys, we're almost there.

I should care, I should go around weepin'
I should care, I should go without sleepin'
Strangely enough I sleep well, 'cept for a dream or two
But then I count my sheep well
Funny how sheep can lull you to sleep
So I should care, I should let it upset me
I should care, but it just doesn't get me
Maybe I won't find someone as lovely as you
But I should care and I do
Maybe I won't find someone as lovely as you
But I should care and I do
