Seven women are dead in northwest Indiana and a 43 year-old man has confessed to killing them, including 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy and 35-year-old Anith Jones. The police are referring to the man as a "person of interest" while they continue their investigation but fear they may be dealing with a serial killer.
Tomorrow, Karen Freeman-Wilson will become the first black woman to serve as mayor of a city in Indiana. That city is Gary, the Detroit of Indiana, fully realized caricature of urban decay, the rusted over ribcage of America's manufacturing sector. Good luck, brave lady.
