I wondered why helicopters were circling our house this morning.  The last time so many circled for so long was the night the FBI found the tree stump the Beltway Sniper had used for target practice, in a backyard a few miles from our neighborhood.  I was about to click on the News Tribune, but the answer was on my opening page, CNN: A shooting at our local high school, just blocks from our home.  News choppers are everywhere, relaying images of police cars and school buses evacuating kids.  This is all taking place within a four-minute walk from my house, but I have instant video newscasts. 

Good morning, Tacoma.
