On the way to morning shit-shoveling I heard on the radio about another mass shooting. This one in an elementary school, for God’s sake. Double-digit body count.
My first thought, I do confess, was “Is the Brady Bunch paying these guys to do this or what?”
Second thought: “God, I’m a jerk.”
Turns out Claire was thinking along the same lines, at just about the same time.
Seen somewhere else, with the same anticipation:
After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.
