Nothing gets the listserv fired up (see what I did there?!) as much as potential mortal peril in our bucolic hood.
So naturally, there was concern late last night about potential shots fired. And naturally, the comments went from zero to 60 in an instant.
Did anybody just hear what sounded like two gunshots?

Good thinking posting that, Lulu. That’s what you want to do when you feel unsafe…LISTSERV TO THE RESCUE!
Yes here in franklin court too. Has someone called the police? If not I will.
At this point, I am imagining these two women cowering in their living rooms, furiously typing out messages to the listserv and waiting for one of the “regulars” to swoop in and save them.
Seriously?? Neither of you had called the police???????
BOOM. Commence throw down. Lulu defends her original email:
Settle down. Police were already responding by the time I hit send on my original post. Still not sure what happened. We couldn’t decipher the conversation happening on our police scanner app.
I’m sorry…WHA?! So you are not calling the police, but writing the listserv and listening to a police scanner (there’s an app for that?!).
Like clockwork, the snarky peacekeepers rear their heads.
Seriously – simmer down. What good does this berating do? Keep it to yourself.
Followed shortly by:
Yes we called the police, you lunatic.
Ah, civil discourse at its finest. The kicker is I still don’t know if actual shots were fired or not.
