About Me

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.

i can't stand steve kornacki.

he probably does some decent reporting but as soon as i see it's him, it's over. not watching.

Who has a connection

however slight, to a mass shooting?

for myself, the Torrance, CA Gable House Bowl is around the corner from where I was born and raised. On my first date, we went bowling at Gable House. Later I bowled in a league there. it's been a fixture there as long as i can remember. it opened in 1959, when i turned 4 years old.

The first I learned of Sandy Hook was right here on DU, with a post by a DUer who was working with a man who had to leave the office abruptly after learning that his son was involved. I think I recall that his son was among the dead.

while growing up in that nice suburban house in Torrance CA i remember at about the age of 10 thinking I'll probably never know anyone who does murder or is murdered. I was wrong.

Looking at the TIME cover posted here just now got me thinking about it. How many are still unaffected? How many are not?

trying to nail down a definition for mass shooting led me to this article.
