44. I don't have a problem with you, we're fine

This particular tragedy hit a bit too close to home for me, my youngest grandkid is just a bit older than the kids at Sandy Hook. This killing is actually worse for me than 9/11 I think, that was mostly adults, this feels even more personal.

I don't even hate the young man that did it, living inside that head must have been unspeakable horror.

It seems to me that since we have a society theoretically based on a happy medium solution to problems then the way to influence things the way I want them to go is to push for the maximum and make the best arguments I can for that. If were engaged in substantive negotiations for actual law I might act differently but this here is all about inflencing public perception however minutely and I think we can all agree on that.

I have come close to losing my temper a few times on this subject over the last few days, not with any particular individual but just at the whole stupid venal situation. Our society is just so fucked up it's really hard to deal with at times like this, the cartoonists seem to have a better handle on the problems at least than anyone else I've seen and that's kind of pathetic.

Take care Jody.
