Misdirected & misplaced outrage is a symptom of our society's spiritual malaise.

Anything but looking directly at the horror.

Maybe I'm doing it now.

The same sh*t after every mass murder. Don't "politicize" it. Don't use it to advance an "agenda." Well, who is always advancing the agenda of silencing critics of legal lethal assault weapons in the name of "compassion" or "empathy"? Postpone your outrage, they say.

The good people of Newtown don't need a million cards of condolences & 10,000 teddy bears. But when they emerge from their grief & begin to feel outrage, they will need our outrage.

My district state senator on FB referred to the mass murders as a "random act of violence" & suggested "random acts of kindness." He 's a liberal Democrat but he can't possibly be that naive. I pointed out that this attack was a planned & wildly successful  targeted mass killing.

There was a time, fifteen years ago, when some local politicians actually listened to what I had to say, knowing  I had legit public bully pulpits, although I rarely used them to criticize local politicians.
