2 dead, 10 hurt in New Orleans Halloween shootings

Two people died and at least 10 others were injured in separate shootings in New Orleans early Tuesday, including one on Bourbon Street where costumed revelers were celebrating Halloween.

The first shooting, just after midnight outside a Bourbon Street nightclub, sent people running for cover, CNN affiliate WWL reported.

\A 25-year-old man was shot several times and died at a hospital, police said. Seven other people, ranging in age from 19 to 50, were also injured.

    Maybe, banasy, the limited coverage is for the same reason that we keep hearing about the trial of MJ's pusher.

    Hmmmm, JIF, that could be, that could be.
    Quite tired of hearing about that, I might add.
    Um, why did you shorten your name?

    Fancy is good, JIF.
    Much easier for the eye to go to a relevant post.

    The Koch model: SPEND !!! Spend some more: no limits because all the children of KU University are starving.

    Cain: Why dig up a dead allegation when Cain is KOCH. Koch Kansas University is CAIN on a "radical libertarian"
    roll call that includes radically unemployed and previously important vets who are undertrained in jobs that amount
    to standing around? What is their future of KU KOCH? Police... nothing more of a larger society.

    So then we say A VOTE FOR CAIN... is indeed A VOTE FOR KOCH.... SPENDING, SPENDING , SPENDING KU central....

    There was a shooting in Las Vegas too. Two teens shot one dead.

    Its no secret that Cain is operating from the dollar lined lap of Koch bros. That alone should be enough to turn off voters ( hopefully ).
    Unfortunately our elections have now turned into a commodity bought & sold by the likes of Koch bros, big business & lobbies.
    You must have heard that the much touted Super Committee formed to look into and come up with suggestions for Debt reduction & such has ties to almost a 100 lobbies. This is how things are.
