A not-as-bad-as-it-could-be news story


by David Safier

It's no feel-good story that a man at an Albuquerque church vaulted over pews and stabbed members of the choir before he was held stopped and held down by parishioners. But the good news is, the four people who were stabbed are alive and stable.

If the man attacked a group of choir members standing shoulder to shoulder with a gun, the event would almost certainly had a bloodier and more tragic conclusion.
