The murder of 4 fellow officers is a tragic reminder that the field of law enforcement is a dangerous one. Every day, thousands of the men and women who protect our communities say farewell to those they love. For those 4 officers, Sunday was their final goodbye. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Griswold, Owens, Renninger and Richards families. I hope they find the solace they seek during this difficult hour.

Two new studies suggest many people can't walk and talk (on a cell phone) simultaneously — at least not safely. The studies, in which participants crossed a virtual street while talking on the phone or listening to music, found that cell phone chatterers (even those employing hands-free devices) took longer to cross the street, and thus were more likely to get run over. Oddly enough, the music listeners weren't similarly affected.
