Did Gillette, Wyoming, or Wheeling, West Virginia have the same number of shootings over the Labor Day weekend?
I'm sure Gillette and Wheeling had "sunny weather, idle hands and holiday partying" over the Labor Day weekend.
I mean, who works on Labor Day weekend?
So, why the gratuitous mention of "idle hands"?
[N.S.: Besides which, just about everyone in Detroit will have idle hands 366 days this year, including those who are nominally employed.]
Are the folks behind The Onion the same ones behind The Detroit News?
[What a mystery. Detroit presently has only 688,701 “residents,” yet it had more shootings on one holiday weekend in 2016, than it used to have in a month, in its glory days as the Paris of the West, when it had 1,848,000 citizens.]
