Massive Police Shootout in Cleveland Despite Lack of Criminals
A November car chase ended in a "full blown-out" firefight, with glass and bullets flying, according to Cleveland police officers who described for investigators the chaotic scene at the end of the deadly 25-minute pursuit.

But when the smoky haze -- caused by rapid fire of nearly 140 bullets in less than 30 seconds -- dissipated, it soon became clear that more than a dozen officers had been firing at one another across a middle school parking lot in East Cleveland.

At the end of the scene, both unarmed -- and presumably innocent -- people in the car were dead.

Blank screen if kids yell too much
My kids (4 and 5) yell a lot when playing games on our Linux box. I found an effective cure for this: I've told them that the computer doesn't like loud noises. So when they get loud, I ssh into the box and run:
chvt 3;  sleep 15;  chvt 7
This turns off the screen for 15 seconds. They get quiet, but not to the level that I would be happy with. So I need to continue this educational process, but I'm getting tired of doing this manually.
