This seemed redundant to me:
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson expressed shock at the New Year’s Eve slayings of two people in the crowded Old Sacramento area.
“I was shocked and saddened by the news of last night’s shooting in Old Sacramento,” he said in a statement.
Duh? (Story here. I know it’s just a blog, but it still strikes me as merely padding a word count. Sheesh, they let just ANYBODY have a blog these days! 😉 )
*I’m posting this from my phone on the WordPress app, after copying text from the browser — mostly just to see if I could. Fun times! Also, I’m procrastinating on other things I should be doing, so this isn’t a “real” post. 🙂
