Terrible thing in Cairo

I can't recall a bank robbery around here that ended in injury or death. A couple of retail store robberies, yes, but bank robbers in this area tend to get their money without any problem, or not get it.

That was not the case in Cairo last week, where two people at a branch bank were killed in a robbery that police say was committed by a man with a long history of violence.

If he is guilty, may he be locked away forever.

Vikings (updated with fourth picture)

In 1972, I rooted for the Minnesota Vikings, partly because of their cool helmets and partly because they played in that open-air stadium in December and January.

A few years later, I learned of the existence of the Viking line of Dravo-built towboats, and ever since I have rooted for Dravo Vikings.

Today I saw one come down the river past Huntington WV, so I got off a few shots.

I had one more photo to upload, but for some reason Blogger won't let me put any more pictures on here right now. If Blogger changes its mind, I'll be back.


Hah. I got the fourth picture up.
