    Lynne Russell stays at a Motel 6?

    My first impulse is drug deal gone wrong.

    Yep, this is one of those initial stories that just screams bullshit. Two former CNN personalities just happen to get confronted and pushed in room at the type of cheap motel chain notorious for drug activities (and in New Mexico, home of Walter White, of all places), and they just happen to be carrying loaded ready to fire handguns at that very moment? Methinks there's a bit more to this story.

    What a bunch of cynical SOBs. But you might have a point. :)

    Me too. It's the Motel 6 part that got me. You would think a pair of former CNN staffers could afford to stay at a better motel.

    Maybe Tom Bodett left a light on for them.

    Catching dinner at "about 11:35 local time," kinda jumps out at me.

    Must have gotten takeout from Los Pollos Hermanos.

    Who flashes their concealed pistol when the guy is shooting at them? Should have shot the guy through the purse.

    That's exactly what I was expecting it to say he did.
