Sometimes The Obvious Is Reassuring

Yesterday, an 82 year old woman drove her car into the patio of a Second Cup coffee shop in Ottawa. A man sitting on the patio at the time was injured but is said to be doing well in hospital. Ottawa Police say they think the woman lost control of her car.

While I hesitate to make light of what could have been a tragedy, I can't help but think that it is reassuring to know that, despite all the capital's social ills, we at least don't have to contend with renegade senior citizens deliberately driving into coffee shop patios. Lost control of her car? D'ya think?
