Well where we go again ... another blog about the insanity in the world. People have always been unstable in one form or another - subject to emotional flares triggered by brain chemistry and their programming. It's not just human insanity that seems to be at play now, but from what I observe from day to day, things in this reality simple don't work and malfunction in the most bizarre ways. These events are getting predictable, as the glitches in the grids are getting worse and more apparent in everyone's life.

Here's an email from a friend in the city sent last night.

Here's my experience beginning last Friday.

Washington Navy Yard Shooter Aaron Alexis, 34, grew up in Bushwick on the other side of Brooklyn. I read that he was at 9/11 and suffered from PTSD as well as other psychiatric disorders. This describes many people in today's world so be careful if you have to deal with them. The violence is going to escalate.

South Side of Chicago Gang Shooting

Friday September 20, 2013

Yesterday I talked to my fiend Geri who lived most of her life in Chicago until moving to Idaho. The topic was Crime in Chicago today. Geri recalled the city being safer when she lived there but the world has gone mad so things are out of control. Today's story out of Chicago reminds me of the old time gangster days. I sent Geri this video about Chicago.

Westgate shopping mall shooting   Wikipedia

On 21 September 2013, unidentified gunmen attacked the upscale Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The attack, lasting until 24 September, resulted in at least 72 deaths, including 61 civilians, 6 Kenyan soldiers and 5 attackers. The attackers held hostages and later engaged in gun battles with Kenyan security forces. Over 200 people were reportedly wounded in the mass shooting. The Islamist group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the incident, which it characterised as retribution for the Kenyan military's deployment in Somalia. Many media outlets also suspected the insurgent group's involvement in the attack based on earlier reprisal warnings it had issued in the wake of Operation Linda Nchi from 2011 to 2012.
