Sometimes I hate being right

City Council to replace Matt Garcia
Arrests Made in Matt Garcia's Murder
Matt Garcia Slain by Mistake

In short:
An election is too expensive, someone will be appointed to his seat on the city council.
Two people "not in Matt's circle" were arrested, a third is still being sought.
Matt Garcia was shot by someone looking to collect on a drug debt. Garcia just happened to be in the wrong place.

Ever since the twin towers fell on September 11, 2001, it's been one series of coincidences after another, all of them just happening to lead us into a situation where "we need to get the guns off the street", "we need to believe in our government", and "just trust us and we'll take of it" have all become the bylines of life in the modern world.

This is too depressing. From the local level to the international, the world is charging headfirst into Armageddon and nobody is listening to those who are sounding the alarms. The pace since July 30th has become so intense I literally cannot keep up with it. Three, no, four severe hurricanes within a couple weeks, all tearing through the Gulf of Mexico, all damaging America's most important shipping lanes and ports for imports from Europe and the Middle East. Doesn't anyone remember H.A.A.R.P.? There is more than one now, you know? One in Alaska, one in Norway, and a third whose location I cannot bring to mind. One of the speculations about H.A.A.R.P. was that the technology could easily be used to initiate earthquakes and extreme weather systems. They fire up the LHC and run a proton all the way around for the first time and suddenly there are four major earthquakes within 24 hours.

And I'm even going to bother outlining all the scandals and turmoils that have torn through Christianity just in the past two months, let alone the past year!

Oh, and the Cheney-Bush drive toward martial law has not been asleep at the wheel. They have accused an Iranian shipping company of transporting nuclear materials:
US a step closer to Iran blockade.
Medvedev: armed action against Iran unacceptable

Too many coincidences... It's going to be a devil of a winter!
