Shooting in MC today?
Posted by homesweet (+71) 9 years ago
So apparently it was going around the middle school and highschool today that there was a shooting over by the middle school, and the person shot was the person who had raped the girl last week (and another girl before that??). Does anyone know anything about this? I don't even remember hearing sirens. The neighbor kids were all talking about it today after school and filled me in on these details lol. So not a very reliable source I am sure, but curiousity has gotten the best of me

I think the shooter was the alligator that lives in the Yellowstone.

My favorite grapevine moment was about 1980. A piece of old plaster and lathe ceiling in the basement fell down when classes were changing at the high school. School was let out because they were concerned a few more bits might fall down and the plaster dust made everyone cough.

Within minutes, the word was out that the high school had been blown up, nothing was left but a smoking ruins, hundreds, maybe thousands were dead. You know the drill.

What made it funny was I was told about this while standing in front of the Presbyterian Church. You know, on the corner where if you turn around, you can SEE the high school. No smoke. No flashing lights. Nada.

My younger brother spilled some pop on his shoes because he was taking a drink at the other end of the hall when the ceiling fell but that was about it for damages.

But I still remember the rumors. The hysteria. It was delightful.

I was sitting upstairs and I heard a couple of shots the other night...

Then I remembered I had an action movie playing on the tv downstairs.

Good Lord! Allison. That was about the time when THE GLOVE was leaving cryptic messages near the gym. . I got a call from the adminstration about who was behind THE GLOVE messages.

Was it the same person who was publishing some rogue muckraking newspaper for their fellow students?

Those shots that were heard around Washinton Jr.High were actually a sorry soul who ate too much chili and then had some really good sausage from WallyWorld. What a match!
Or a truck backfiring? Same thing??
