Thanks, everyone. TB had a good sleep and his hand is feeling better. He is so lucky that it didn't do any real damage as it was a deep cut. He should not lose any movement, though the doctor said he was lucky.

The police came and took his statement and said they do not have a motive or any leads.

The reason the cameras were only on the booth and not the pumps is that the pumps are self serve by credit card or pre-pay only and the booth carries the cash. So the likelyhood of something happening at the pumps was minimal...until now.

Because of the recent murder in our area and the town meetings about safety, TB's experience at the gas station has made it to the press. The station attendant and owner were interviewed but we asked that TB's name be left out of it because of his current job and he used to work with a few of the recovery houses in the area.

The public is screaming for several of the deregulated recovery houses to be shut down because they figure that is the problem. However, we know that if they close them, the people will just be on the streets and the problems will be worse.

The big cause is that the previous "bad" part of town is being cleaned up so the riff-raff are moving south into our community.

We know this wasn't a targeted attack on TB, but if he was to be identified, it might cause more problems than it is worth. A lot of those guys he worked with confided in him and if he were to appear on the "other" side, that could undo any good.

That's just terrible LP, I hope TB is better and in not too much pain. Good plan, keeping him out of the media coverage.

I'm glad it made the news. It gives other people a warning.

Truck Day is the day the Red Sox equipment truck leaves Fenway Park for the spring training facility in Florida (Jet Blue Park). Not long after, pitchers and catchers report to spring training followed by the rest of the team and the fun begins.

It's kind of a hokey fabricated event but for me it's the start of another baseball season and I love watching, reading about, calculating statistics for and listening to sports radio on the subject of the Boston Red Sox.

I have to go change the wallpaper on my laptop from the Patriots logo to the Red Sox logo.

Thank you. And I have to change my g'son's pic from #12 Brady shirt to one of him with the Green Monster for my wall paper.

I really feel for you both that the Patriots lost. But it would have been difficult for me to watch them against the Seahawks. I wouldn't know which side to cheer for.
