Crash overnight outside our local School.

Not a lot going on today. I've been playing games most of the day and not been watching the news.

One thing has happened though. Seems a drunk driver drove into a school at some time during the night. The story I am told is that his passenger, a teenager, also drunk, was killed and the driver was seriously injured. Kind of a basic story really and one which thankfully is not too common but common enough so you can't spend too much time on it. This one however seems different. The school is just at the end of our street and by being in the front garden I can see it easily. All day different people of all ages have been laying flowers at the crash site and there is a little shrine. It makes it look like the pope or someone important has died. Either that or it's just the UK's obsession with making a big deal out of sudden accidental death.
