The names of the little girls and boys, all dead now, were printed in white letters on a black background in this morning's Sunday New York Times--above the fold.
The lead story began as follows:
"The gunman in the Connecticut shooting blasted his way into the elementary school and then sprayed the children with bullets, first from a distance and then at close range, hitting some of them as many as 11 times, as he fired a semiautomatic rifle loaded with ammunition designed for maximum damage..."
That soul-crushing sentence was all I could bear to read.
Fiscal cliff? Our childrens' future? Are you f*cking kidding me?
We can't even keep lethal weapons out of the hands of demented psychopaths.
