Jennifer D. Wade Journal

Welcome to my online diary, enjoy your stay!

One Week Down

Well, somehow we managed to survive our first week without *****, the Asst. ND who retired last week.  We had a lot of big stories this week, including some breaking news, and we did well - special reports, skycam hits in the 7PM, etc.  I don't even think I heard anyone saying they missed the other guy or wished he were there to give guidance.  I suppose there will eventually be some situation that will elicit comments like that, but not this week.  And that's a good thing.
One of the stories we covered this past week was the murder of an 87-year-old woman.  She lived above a popular business in Wilkes-Barre, and everybody in the neighborhood knew her.  Police believe that a burglar broke into her apartment, probably looking for drug money or something to sell to get drug money.  They don't think the burglar expected the woman to be there, and that when he saw her, he panicked and stabbed her.  Awful.  The DA is fed up.  He called the crime "outrageous."  You don't usually hear DAs throwing around words like that.  But, he's right, and I'm glad to hear it.
Today it's off to Marc and Joy's for their annual summer party.  I know that I'm still not on Marc's list of his top 10 favorite Mensans.  But, considering that he invited me back to the party, maybe I'm getting close!
