Good morning, everybody! A little hung-over today? Have a rough night? Bet you went to a bunch of parties. Wandered around insufficiently dressed for the weather, drank beer at one party and cocktails at another. You were kind of a mess, huh? That sucks. But you know what? You could have been shot in gang crossfire while eating at McDonald's. Yeah, that's right. That's what happened to four Halloween revelers in Union Square early in the morning today. And one woman got stabbed. Fortunately, no one was fatally wounded. All of the victims were between 18 and 21, which basically means they were probably dressed-up NYU students with the munchies after a long night of frolicking. They woke up this morning at Bellevue Hospital where they are recovering from their injuries. So, yeah. Wow. Wait, what were you saying about your hangover again?
