Today, I recognize that the horrible elementary school shooting in Sandy Hook, CT, is the one thing everyone is talking about, and with good reason. 27 people are dead, 18 of them children, at last count. Even with the rash of random shootings in the past little while, this feels like a new low, a fresh horror, and we’re transfixed by it.
I don’t really know what to say about it right now. It’s just happened, we don’t even have all the details yet. The shooter is dead, we know that. And of course, the arguments over gun control have already begun. About which, as usual, Jon Stewart has better things to say than I do.

But right now, I just really don’t have a lot of insight. I have shock, and sorrow, and a bit of numbness as I try to process still another tragedy in this screwed up world of ours.
So I’m going to sit with that for a bit and see what it has to tell me.
