Gunshots. Police cars. Sirens. Blood.
These are some of the main things you would see in popular crime shows, such as Law & Order or C.S.I., but what about Santa Ana? What’s happening here in our town?
It's a chilly, February morning, and your friends offer to take you out for a drink. They ask if you would prefer coffee or tea. What would you choose?

You get there,walk around, and as you continue on you realize your friends are no longer by your side. What do you do? You can't call anyone, because there's no such thing as a cell phone.

What’s better: being sweaty, or shivering? Do you prefer “Baby it’s cold outside,” sung by Dean Martin or “Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,” sung by Seals and Crofts?
