Butterflies, moths, caterpillars, a certain roach, visitors and friends,
First, a million thanks to all followers and participants.
I’ve not written many blog posts lately because my eye doctor has instructed me to decrease the amount of time I spend looking at the computer screen. This open discussion will probably be the most current post until the end of next week, and then I might reblog as I return to being able to read more online.
I did see a fantastic movie and when I’m back writing, I want to share it with you.
There have been some cases and other news that I’ve been following. Here are summaries:
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt has offered to pay funeral expenses for the 10 victims killed in the Sante Fe High School shooting in Texas, CBS affiliate KHOU-TV reports. The family of one victim, Shana Fisher, said they accepted his offer. CBS News has the story. Autopsies are to reveal whether any of the victims were killed by law enforcement or resource officers in the crossfire between them and Dimitrios Pagourtzis, the identified shooter. More on USA Today.
Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, and all creatures great and small,

Rather than write separate posts for each story, here are some updates, and we can use this post for open discussion as well.

In February 2015, Liang was indicted by a grand jury. His trial began on Monday with opening statements. The trial is not livestreamed, but Wild About Trial is writing on the daily proceedings.
The 911 call reporting the shooting has been released. Read the rest of this entry
