SKN Headlines of the Week

It is, I admit, an irregular feature.

Two shootings have occurrred in the last week, with at least one of them fatal. The news of this one has run under the heading

Another Son Shot...Another Mother Weeps.

But apparently someone has gotten bored with the subject already, or perhaps just with the sort of comment that usually follows. At any rate, tonight I notice a new, "improved" heading:

Another Son Shot... Another Mother Weeps... Let She Arse Bawl.

Update: Caroline, who is apparently developing Postaphobia, writes offline to ask why the mother of the shooting victim was to bawl. From what I can gather the victim had something of a reputation as a bad boy or gangster and the shooting involved the police in some way.
