juxtaposition

Events move so quickly. Today the West, Texas story continues to develop and break my heart.
The Kaufman murders resulted in indictments--the police theory is that the killings were revenge-based by a disbarred disgraced justice of the peace irate over a criminal prosecution.
An arrest warrant recites that one of the two alleged killers confessed, and the press suggests that the car and weapons involved were found via a search warrant. As I type this, the news reports a new death of a policeman at M.I.T. The photos of the Boston bombing suspects are circulating on television. I spent my evening at the Garland Salvation Army giving folks free legal advice on their civil legal issues. There were lots of clients and six attorney volunteers.

The day proved cold today and rainy. During lunch I drove through Breckinridge Park. I saw my first eastern kingbird of the Spring. I went to take his picture. Just before I snapped the shutter on the digital camera, a scissor-tailed flycatcher flew in front of him. I like the juxtaposition.
