Yikes, Columbus, Again

This is a Columbus Dispatch chart that appeared in a December 1 story marking the infamous milestone of 100 homicides for the 11 months of 2010 in the City of Columbus.  Not good.

I remember in 1991, the first year I lived there, the number of Columbus homicides hit a shocking 139.  The Dispatch would publish a map with a dot for every murder that year. 

That was a scary map.

The ATM I used.  Murder.

The main street I followed.  Murder.  Murder.

Want go to a new restaurant?  Murder there.  Murder here.

Who can live like this?  No pun intended.

Time to do something, Columbus.  Time to do something.
