Good morning, everyone, it's 8:01am. It's freezing out there! It's only like 19 degrees right now, and it's so cold that I don't want to get out of bed (being under the covers is rather warm). This is the coldest weather I've seen almost all year. Anyway, it's Black Friday, meaning it's time to SHOP for the holidays. I bet at least some of you rushed or are rushing to the mall to buy what you want/need. I've gotten some reports of "stampedes" already occurring at places like the Brickyard Mall (Diversey and Narraganset) and the WalMart on North Ave. Also, I'm going to take a little bit of an extended dinner break this evening (because I didn't take one yesterday) along with a nap right after that, so I can stay up until 5am. I'd like to monitor 25 from 1:57-5am overnight. So, here's crime for today.
