    But, in the late...

    An average of 82 Americans die each day from guns. About 45 are suicides.

    These don't make the news like Tucson.

    Re: Disappearing eating establishments

    Peter Kim, the owner, tells me the tests for e. coli. came back negative. I find it upsetting that the DOH goes public before it knows what the scoop is. They put a good place out of business.

    Re: Annoying phrases

    Interesting phrases get repeated and quickly become cliches.

    Some on my least favorite list:

    I have a similar problem with telling people my address, which is 3070.

    If I say ”thirty-seventy,“ people often don't get it.
