You've all heard of the DC Sniper trial, I assume? Well, they've moved it HERE. I LIVE in Chesapeake! I'm about 15 minutes from the courthouse and my mom's neighborhood is just about 5 blocks away (not that there are actually blocks...you have to use your imagination). Actually, Great Bridge (the section of the city that the municipal center is located in) is quite wealthy and affluent--it'll be interesting to see how life changes around here. It'll be a circus with the media frenzy! I just hope the guy doesn't come back to Chesapeake to seek his revenge on the city for putting him away. And not that I don't want to do my patriotic duty, but I'm thankfully pretty sure DH and I will be safe from jury duty. He's the sole supporter of our household and I'm SAHM of three, and one, of course, is a nursing infant. I guess you'll be seeing snippets of my town on your local news in November when the trial starts!

You can have the trial, but we will more than likely have the execution. We had the Oklahoma City bomber and that was a huge mess. And of course, all government buildings were shut down along with schools. Lots of media everywhere and roads shut down. Just more attention paid to someone who is sick. So, I know where you are at. When you are done with him, send him on my way!
