DENVER - To be or not to be. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the Earth.
Great lines written by great authors tend to inspire an equal sense of awe and gratitude.
And then there's the line written by a Minnesota man to a female legislator in March of last year during the height of the gun debate inside the Colorado State Capitol.
"You are a whore who has no fear of being raped," he typed.
Trust us, it was one of the more tame lines collected in what the Colorado Senate Democrats call their "Black Binder of Hate."
"You're nothing but a worthless peace [sic] of Communist sh--," wrote another wordsmith.
"You should go buy a gun and kill yourself you disgusting, ugly, fat piece of sh--," wrote a man who called himself Chad. http://www.9news.com/news/article/379204/339/9WTK-Whats-in-the-black-binder-of-hate
Tom Sullivan, whose 27-year-old son Alex was killed in the Aurora theater shooting, on Wednesday voiced outrage at comments from a state senator who said it was perhaps a good thing the gunman had a 100-round magazine.
Sen. Bernie Herpin, R-Colorado Springs, said it was maybe a good thing he (suspect James Holmes) had a 100 round magazine because it jammed, in a July 2012 shooting that killed 12 and injured dozens.
If he had instead had four, five, six 15-round magazines, no telling how much damage he could have done until a good guy showed up, said Herpin, as he offered testimony before a Senate Judiciary Committee on a bill to repeal a law that limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.
In recent days, several supporters of repealing gun control laws passed in 2013, have stressed that larger ammunition magazines jam easier than lower-round magazines.
Theres just a real lack of empathy for the victims, for everyone impacted by the shooting, said Sullivan, who testified in opposition to Herpins repeal measure. Since his sons death, Sullivan has dedicated much of his time to voicing support for tougher gun control laws across the country.
The Seattle Seahawks are undoubtedly the most poppin team in the NFL today. They have the cool west coast coach, a swag star for a quarterback, some fresh-ass uniforms and some of the rowdiest fans in the league.
But there is, of course, more than meets the eye. The Seahawks have one of the most intimidating defenses in the NFL, with one of the most prolific secondaries who makes life impossible for guys like Colin Kaepernick. But its more than just great coaching and personnel that makes this team so great; its the preparation.
Some of these notable Seahawks techniques have been revealed, after it was published in a recent edition of ESPN The Magazine that players are all mandated to meditate and do yoga. Head coach Pete Carroll admitted that his guys are all required to take a class. This, of course, goes hand-in-hand with the meditation, which all of the players also do.
God did have a say in this game after she/he heard John Elway's I'm a Republican anti-safety-net garbage.
