Helicopters hovering over the house

When I stepped out of the shower yesterday morning, I could hear helicopters hovering directly over the house. The first thing I thought was, I must have really screwed up this year’s tax return. Then I thought about that man in Pakistan last year who updated Twitter with news of helicopter activity outside his home. It turned out he was live-tweeting the capture of Osama bin Laden. I was running late for work, so I decided to let it go. I checked a local news website when I got to the office. It turns out two people were shot and killed a couple streets away. A police officer was involved, so that was the reason for the commotion. Nothing to see here. Move along.
