Green Room - Week 21 - Day 4

I woke up this morning and was completely horrified by the news coming out of Virginia.

Well, that's not completely true. I woke up during my bus ride and found out - it was way too early when I woke up the first time!

Whatever our differences are on important issues, I *hope* that everyone can agree that shooting people isn't the answer.

Unless of course, the question is "What isn't the answer?"

In which case, "shooting people" would indeed be the correct answer. It's complicated. ;)

What IS the answer is posting your entry: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1023224.html

Because it's due *tomorrow*!

I hope that the shooting was not some partisan, political act, but was done by someone with a personal, loony reason for shooting a Republican Congressman.

Reading that article made me tear up. We should never be in a position where an elected official has to "army crawl" to get out of the way of a shooter. I hope everyone survives. So terrible!

So I posted in the work room, but never received an answer. So I'll post it here.

Can current events include concerts, museum openings, recent reviews, etc? Or does it have to be limited to news headlines?

TIA.

I struggled with a slightly different iteration of this question too. When is the headline too niche to be "a local news story or current event?"

For me, I think it's less about being sourced from an actual local rag and more about the flavor being "local news." I think I'm going to use a story about recent state government happenings that affect many local communities, for example. And though the action happened in my town, I think it's from a central Florida news org. So I think those types of stories could work for the prompt.

My apologies. I must have missed that.

As with everything, it's open to your interpretation. If those are current events to you, then absolutely go for it.
