The Daily Word in Flashdancing, pure evil and also a goat

Good morning, it's Wednesday, June 11,

and let's take a moment to remember the famous "Flashdancer of Albuquerque Academy,"

before we settle into the grim business of keeping our eyes peeled for a black or green small pickup truck with front end damage

that was probably involved in the deadly "hit-and-run" that killed one pedestrian and injured three others on Monday morning at an encampment of homeless people on Iron and 1st,

that was almost certainly an act of hatred and malice.

Usually, I put in a bunch of other stories here too

today I'm just too mad about this to give it much effort

but, still, here are some pictures of Prince Harry petting an official military goat.
