#1 Both "kids" were in their 20's. To me that's not a kid and the interview and tone make it sound like there are little kids or at most early teens.

There's a cultural problem here that never gets addressed. Read Patrick O'Brien's tales of the British navy during the Napoleanic era and see what ages went with what responsibilities.

Pretty soon "Cradle to Grave" will mean that you never leave the cradle till they bury you.

#2 Neoteny is what happens to pets (i.e. they never grow up to be adults).

State funded pets for bureaucrats.

#6 Two groups of young men GANGS had a confrontation about 1:40 p.m. and the man was shot.

At the risk of sounding insensitive the article makes no mention of comments from the father(s).

#7 Frank, not only can empty guns do that - today I was told in no uncertain terms that "assault weapons" could accidently kill kids if they're carried about. or even allowed to exist.
