Only about fifty people worship there, and he killed around thirty.

So that’s a pretty amazing percentage, even by US massacre standards.


“[T]oo many moments of silences.”

In a time of insanity and disgrace, this is what principle looks like.

    Enough with hand wringing and gaze averting and civic pieties. There are people in DC who continue to fail us.

    Barney: For me, the form letter that keeps being sent from our leaders – We’re praying for you. – is really getting old.

  3. Bernard Carroll Says:

    Yes. That one they crank out using an ancient stencil machine.

    the politics that lead people to say that these sorts of attacks are inevitable (never mind Australia having proved otherwise) but that we can somehow stop attacks by random lone terrorists if we just give up more money and privacy to the ‘security’ state is maddening to say the least.

    … and apparently gun crimes are so unique that “well, they will happen anyway, so laws won’t make a difference” is a logical argument even though that is the case, by definition for EVERY CRIME THAT PEOPLE COMMIT. By that rationale we also need not have “murder” as a crime, because its presence on the books is demonstrably not stopping murder. Gun laws are the one area where we allow making the perfect the enemy of the good to become public policy.

  6. Margaret Soltan Says:

    dcat: Yes. Absolutely true.
