Recommend not using "this morning" for a byline.

Andy, the story was first delivered as a breaking news alert (delivered separately to email boxes), so I needed the immediacy. You'll see our stories are time-stamped. At Patch, our style is to reference today, but not tomorrow or yesterday. When in doubt, check the time stamp.

I knew him as a sweet fun person who was well liked by many people. He will be missed and my heart goes out to his family.

Hi Penny, Just about a week or two ago I mentioned that it seems like this kind of thing is on a sharp increase in OC, and here we go again. What the hell is going on when pedestrians are mowed down on a regular basis? What is law enforcement doing about this increasing problem? Have you thought about doing a story on that and getting their take on this? Seems like it's now a public service to address this on some level and by those who can do something about it (law enforcement).

"seems like this kind of thing is on a sharp increase" Is it in fact increasing? What does "regular basis" mean? What is your [a lady in a robe with curlers in her hair typing on her computer?] suggestion for law enforcement [experienced traffic engineers, experienced cops, road planners, lawyers, and auto manufacturers]? Is it true this was a suicide? Is it true pedestrians are 69 times safer per hour traveled than motorists are? Is it true that 99.7% of pedestrians killed by motorists were in violation of code (out of crosswalks, jogging in the street when there's a sidewalk available, etc)?
