Well, well. It seems someone tried to send a message through Louise Slaughter's window early this morning. As this was before my latest post on the subject appeared, we will merely mark this down to serendipitous coincidence and great minds thinking alike. Of course, the thrower might have been a fan of my old fiction piece, The Window War. Who knows? If anything else breaks over the weekend, then we'll see if this story has legs. No groaning please.
Brick thrown through window in Slaughter's Falls office

NIAGARA FALLS — The "Slaughter Solution" on health care isn't the only thing that has come under attack in U.S. Rep. Louise M. Slaughter's world this week. Sometime early this morning, someone threw a brick through the front window of her Pine Avenue office.
The damage was discovered about 12:30 a.m., city police said.
The brick put a hole in the outer-most window at the office at 1910 Pine Ave., but did not damage a second interior window, police reported. A piece of broken brick believed to have caused the damage was found at the scene.
Damage was estimated at $350.
Slaughter, D-Fairport, is head of the House Rules Committee, which will structure the debate on health care reform votes set for this weekend.
