In the meantime

It's been a while, I know. And there was a holiday. And there's another one coming up. And one day I'd like to do something with this site other than all-too sporadically memorialize people killed or otherwise damaged and/or disappeared by what in other contexts we would simply call "armed groups," but for now, this is what I have for you: Miguel Angel Cano, 34 years old, known to friends and family as Michael, or as Drifter, and shot to death by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department on November 9, 2015. The details are here. When I wrote the piece, it seemed pretty likely that Cano would be the last man the LAPD killed for the year. It didn't work out that way. So yeah. One day. In the meantime, here are birds, and clouds.
