Senseless violence

I was depressed tonight when I read the story by Albany Times Union senior writer Steve Barnes of a violent attack against him and a friend as they left a restaurant Friday night. The attackers, who began pummeling Barnes and his friend Josh with no provocation and remained silent during the attack, simply walked away afterward. Steve and Josh, I hope you make a quick recovery and that the police catch the scumbags that did this to you. (Thanks to Romenesko.)

The second incident was in Little Rock, Arkansas, where TV reporter Anne Pressly was found seriously injured in her home early this morning with "blunt force trauma to the head and upper body." Pressly was found around 4:30 a.m. by her mother, who had gone to Anne's home after she failed to answer her mother's wake-up call. Police say the attack may have been the result of a robbery since Pressly's purse was missing. There are currently no suspects.
