to tell the story of how many aspects of this story seem laughable to me?<p>Two killed at Miami barbershop co-owned by basketball star
Alonzo Mourning
Eds: LEADS with 3 grafs to add identities of victims. Pickup
4th graf pvs 'The Cutz ...'<p> MIAMI (AP) … Three or four hooded gunmen walked into a
barbershop co-owned by pro basketball star Alonzo Mourning and
killed two men who had just gotten haircuts, police said.<p> ``Both were shot in the head. It seems like a message,''
police Lt. Lorenzo Whitehead said. No one else was injured in
the shooting Saturday, including a 1-year-old child who was
with one of the victims.<p> The victims were identified as Emmett Greene, 27, and
Alexander Harris, whose age was not available Sunday night.<p> The Cutz barbershop is owned by Mourning, a former Miami
Heat star now with the New Jersey Nets, and barber Peter
Bethel.<p> Mourning's agent, Jeff Wechsler, did not immediately return
a call seeking comment Sunday. There is no phone listing for
Bethel in Miami.<p> The shop's neighborhood, in the northern part of Miami, has
attracted upscale restaurants and businesses as it has been
redeveloped.<p> ``This is a really classy spot. A lot of celebrities come
here,'' said Paul Jenkins, a regular Cutz customer. ``Nothing
would ever indicate that this would happen here.''<p> AP-ES-09-07-03 2232EDT<p>[ September 07, 2003: Message edited by: Bumfketeer ]</p>

Just as much a laugh riot are The Hartford Courant's stories this weekend of the Kobe Bryant's cousin claiming that he knows two guys who are the REAL killers of Martha Moxley, not Michael Skakel. (I'm still not sure why the second story rather pointedly pointed out that this Bryant and the two men are black, but I read the second story very quickly.)
