Another rampage

Thoughts and sympathies to ALL of the victims and their families of the bombing and shooting rampage in Norway yesterday. In the coming days and weeks, you will see some trying to blame others for inciting the violence. You will see some blaming others for trying to make political points out of the tragedy. You will see some blaming guns. You will see others defending guns. You will see some say the gunman was simply deranged and it's just a tragedy. If any of them are counting on me to listen, though, they're wasting their breath and their time. I'm sick of all of them. This is almost a word-for-word repost. I was saying the same things back in January. I hope this is the last time but I suspect it won't be.

Quote of the Day

As of now we have 84 dead at Utoeya. In Oslo, with the explosion and the impact it had, we are not yet sure if that number is final. At Utoeya, the water is still being searched for more victims.
Deputy Police Chief Roger Andresen, Norway
