This Day Can’t End Soon Enough

Newburgh, G-d help us No Comments »

First thing this morning, some poor fellow from Severn Trent — a subcontractor of the City of Newburgh who was working on our sewer plant   — wrote a suicide note and stepped in front of a CSX freight train, right by the plant, on the riverfront.

Then — or maybe it was just before that — the roof at City Hall started leaking so badly that it caved in part of the ceiling directly over the IT Department on the first floor.

And then in the afternoon, the fire department was called to bring the Jaws of Life to the scene of a car crash on Carobene Court, near Mt. St. Mary College. Turns out, the only guy in the car had been shot — multiple times. He was rushed to St. Luke’s, but died there.

I’m almost afraid to look outside.
