NYC has gone an entire week without a murder. Some possible reasons for this positive trend:
1.Like everyone else, would-be murderers are spending their time hunting for their Miley Cyrus twerking outfit–this year’s most sought after Halloween costume.
2.Murderers have vowed to stay on the right side of the law until the NY Giants win a game.
3.With so much attention focused on the congress and the government shutdown, homicidal maniacs feel it’s a waste of time to commit murders if the press is not going to pay attention
