The Ultimate Urban Weapon - the AKM

Otherwise generically known as the "AK-47".

I love it.

The reasons I like it:

Made from approximately 52 parts (absudly low number for a "modern" semi-auto rifle).

Shoots an "intermediate" cartridge which pushes a fat .30 caliber projectile at 2330 Feet per second.

Digests any ammunition you care to feed it through a manly 30 round magazine though I prefer the 20-round polymer magazines.

Good for any social need out to 300 yards.

More to follow.

Typical NYFC.....

The more things change the more they stay the same. From USATODAY the following excerpt:

"Neighbor says they ignored dying woman's screams

Neighbors ignored a dying woman's cries for help early Saturday morning in New York City, newspapers report.

Ebony Garcia, 21, was stabbed after midnight at her cousin's apartment in College Point, N.Y.

A neighbor tells the Daily News that she collapsed on the sidewalk and screamed for help from neighbors and passing cars. Newsday says at least three people eventually called police, but it was too little too late.

Garcia died after police found her "lying in a pool of blood," the N.Y. Post reports. "One neighbor said she heard Garcia screaming for 35 minutes but ignored the cries because she thought the victim was drunk," the paper says.

Homicide detectives are hunting for the woman's ex-boyfriend."

Algore Moment.....

Up North may see patchy frost tonight
Here's some news you probably hoped you wouldn't hear for another four months.

The National Weather Service says areas of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin could see patchy frost this weekend. That's right, patchy frost in August.

The weather agency says clear skies could allow temperatures to dip into the low to mid-30s late tonight into early Monday.

Meteorologist Roman Berdes says an unusual cold-air mass from Canada will bring lower temperatures, but warmer air from the central Midwest should replace it by Monday.

Berdes says these temperatures are uncommon but not unheard of. He says those areas saw temperatures in the 20s at this point in 2004.

In the Milwaukee area, today's forecast calls for a high of 75 today and a low tonight of 54.
