Around the watercooler...

  • One of my students last night mentioned this from yesterday's Sideswipe column in the New Zealand Herald:

    "This ordinary post on a personal weblog turns into a chilling story. The blogger, Simon Ng, of Queens, New York, writes: " ... Anyway today has been weird, at 3 some guy ringed the bell. I went down and recognised it was my sister's former boyfriend. He told me he wants to get his fishing poles back. I told him to wait downstairs while I get them for him. While I was searching them, he is already in the house. He is still here right now, smoking, walking all around the house with his shoes on which btw I just washed the floor 2 days ago! Hopefully he will leave soon ... " Within hours, the ex-boyfriend had murdered both the blogger and his sister. The blog post contradicted the murderer's alibi, and he's been charged with murder. The victim's last post is still online and over 250 readers of his weblog have left condolence messages. (Source:"
