What You SHOULD Be Reading About My Hometown

You’ve probably been hearing about Obama and Notre Dame.

But you probably **haven’t** heard about the hit-and-run driver who struck two sisters, ages 4 and six, while they were crossing the street arm-in-arm on Thursday, and tried to speed off.

Until a brave private citizen with a gun stepped in front of the fleeing car and pointed it straight at the driver — who stopped, handed over his keys, and stood meekly at gunpoint until he was arrested when police arrived (a few minutes later, of course).

I can’t wait to see how Mishawaka’s finest deal with this. Stay tuned.

Later news reports indicate
that one of the little girls has died. May she rest in peace, and her family be comforted in their grief.
