Every time a huge story breaks out across the region or even nationally, I always caution our staff to watch it closely for any possible links to Delaware County.
You'd be amazed at how often that happens.
So it was a few weeks ago when we were closely following the senseless case of a road-rage shooting nearby in Chester County that snuffed out the life of a promising recent high school graduate.
I could not get my hands around why someone would actually pull out a gun and shoot another driver in traffic. Is that what we have become?
But I have to admit something else was gnawing at me as well. I kept wondering what the chances were that this guy suspected in the shooting - and his now infamous red pickup truck - were from Delaware County?
It didn't take long to find out.
I write about it in this week's Letter From the Editor.
