KCBS is reporting on the discovery of two women's bodies last night in a room at the Value Inn on West MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland, one of a strip of motels frequented by prostitutes and gangbangers -- and we say this only because we used to live right near there and would occasionally see ladies of the night, walking in the morning light with bloody knees. Few details exist except that the women appeared beaten, and they were found in a room which had been occupied since June 5th. These two unfortunate slayings bring Oakland's total homicide count for 2009 up to 47, and not quite on track to equal last year's tally of 126 for the year.
