Killer heels

In a more-or-less literal sense, this time:

An Augusta [Georgia] woman is being charged with murder after fatally striking her boyfriend in the head with a stiletto heel.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Peebles, 46-year-old Thelma Carter is being charged for the death of 58-year-old Robert F. Higdon.

Authorities believe the incident occurred sometime Sunday evening after an altercation between the two inside the trailer they lived in at Lot A-1 of Augusta Mobile Home Estates.

You know, I just had the feeling this didn’t happen at Augusta National.

    Why does the word “trailer” not surprise me?

    Well, I know some perfectly wonderful people who live in trailers.

    These aren’t them.

    I do too.

    Most news stories of trailers and weirdness don’t seem to include those folks, though.

    If you don’t like a stereotype, don’t live down to the stereotype.
