    Death toll up to seven now. Sickening.

    Otherwise he'd be dead.

    As a totally inconsequential aside, I found this story-padding graph at the end of the LAT's AP story a bit odd.

    Police revise death toll to 6 in Michigan shootings

    Kalamazoo, with a population of about 75,000, is about 160 miles west of Detroit. It is home to Western Michigan University and the headquarters of popular craft beer maker Bell's Brewery. The city also is known for the anonymously funded Kalamazoo Promise program, which has paid college tuition of students who graduate from Kalamazoo Public Schools for more than a decade.

    So was he shooting his passengers or shooting other people at the sites of his drop-offs?

    This is absolutely Uber's worst nightmare come to life.

    I keep thinking this might have been a kazoo-involved shooting.

    Especially if some taxicab union was behind it. Can't help but wonder.
