What Goes On?

What goes on in Cohoes? It seems like every time I open the paper lately, someone ends up dead.

First an elderly good Samaritan opened his door to a stranger who turned out to be a homeless grifter who was high on drugs. He had been knocking on doors until someone opened up. Someone who he subsequently robbed and beat to death. Tragic.

Then a body was found in the Hudson River near Peebles Island. They fell, jumped, were pushed into the frigid water and surfaced in Cohoes. Bizarre.

Walking home from a bar shift on NYE a third Cohosian was crossing a rail bridge from Green Island when he fell to his death. He had been talking on his cell phone when he plunged to his death in Cohoes. What are the odds?

What goes on in Cohoes? I can't say. But my advice: don't jump, walk, or answer your door. It may be hazardous to your health!
