* * *Tamara's ongoing travails hardly bear repeating -- hardly bear it because they are so obviously painful despite her best efforts to pretend otherwise. Tomorrow's orthopedic doctor appointment should help with that.
* * *I haven't mentioned the recent "school shooting" in the greater Indianapolis area -- up at the bedroom community of Noblesville* -- in part because the media already did, in part because seeking fame and attention seems to be a common thread with these shooters. It has garnered all kinds of national attention while they ignore Chicago's daily death-toll, even though no one has died as a result of the Noblesville outrage. One man stopped it: seventh grade science teacher and middle school football coach Jason Seaman tackled the shooter, "swatted his guns away," and was shot three times in the process. He is still in the hospital, doing well. The shooter also shot and injured a student; she is in the hospital and said to be "steadily improving." One man's actions made the difference.
* A county seat in its own right, in the same county as Carmel. At one time, Carmel was the "poor relation" of Hamilton County -- how things have changed!
