Forget the National Hurricane Center and Dr. Grey and that transgendered tropical storm in the Bay of Campeche.
The real summer storm may already be upon us.

Three people were murdered and six others shot in Jefferson Parish in an unusually violent weekend in Jefferson Parish, leaving investigators scrambling to pick up the pieces this morning.
In addition to the murders and shootings, two cuttings and several armed robberies were reported throughout the parish. The incidents were almost evenly divided between the West Bank and East Bank and began Friday night shortly before 11 p.m. and continued until Monday morning, according to alerts.
You know, for all our bad rep, sometime we are flat out pikers when it comes to killing each other.
Tell all my mourners
To mourn in red —
Cause there ain’t no sense
In my bein’ dead.
