Isn't It Ironic?

Speaking of irony (as we were yesterday), the following came verbatim from our local newspaper:

SILVER SPRING, Md. -- Montgomery County police say 16 people were arrested after a fight broke out during a concert held to promote nonviolence and to remember a Silver Spring teen killed last year.

The free Stop the Violence youth concert was held Saturday night on Ellsworth Street in downtown Silver Spring in memory of 14-year-old Montgomery Blair High School student Tai Lam, who was shot to death in November.


Police say fighting broke out near the stage toward the end of the concert and at least one person resisted arrest. Police say 16 adults and juveniles were arrested for offenses such as assault and disorderly conduct.

FYI, Susie, from Susie's Homemade, correctly identified the irony in yesterday's post. She wins a copy of The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan. Congrats, Susie!

Fighting at a non-violence concert. Boggles, doesn't it?

It would be almost funny if it weren't so bloody tragic.

I read Susie's comment and had to listen to the song again. Congrats Susie. We could get together and read...you bring the cupcakes!
