Our little excitement

If any of you got any news from Chapel Hill yesterday, yes, the woods that the cops and sheriffs and deputies and all were combing for a murder suspect are in fact the ones next to our neighborhood and are in fact the ones I go running in a few mornings a week. And where was I? For once I was actually in the office in RTP instead of home with my sweetie since the guys doing roadwork outside the neighborhood cut the phone line (and therefore also my DSL). That was not good. But by the time I got home, it was all over - they'd caught the guy, realized that he wasn't actually the murder suspect, then soon after DID find the murder suspect, so all was cool.

Between that and the little anti-G8 prank in RTP (which was seriously uncool, but I guess this is as close to Sea Island, GA as they're letting protesters get) and finding out today that Wendell Williamson walked out of Dix last night and apparently spent the night hanging out by Lake Wheeler, it's been a very weird 24 hours. In the end, none of this was all that bad, but when things are as quiet as they usually are around here and with general world tension being what it is, we did have our little adrenaline rush. I'm looking forward to a nice quiet weekend...
