My heart melted a little this morning when I hopped online and checked my Twitter feed. There, on my computer screen, was a tweet that at first seemed unreal. It said that overnight, two people had been killed and nearly two dozen had been injured when an alleged drunk driver plowed through a crowd at South by Southwest here in Austin. As I quickly found out, the news was, sadly, true.
Dead are a man from the Netherlands, Steven Craenmehr, who was riding a bicycle, and an Austin woman, Jamie West, who was riding a motor scooter.
