A Big WTF

There was an assassination attempt in Arizona today on Democratic congress woman Gabrielle Giffords. She was apparently part of Sarah Palin's "crosshair" list. With rhetoric like "lock and load" and put Giffords in our "sights", there is some serious WTF going on. The weirdest part is, historically, this is just another blip in the long list of political assassinations. I think I'm just old enough to finally recognize it and understand what it means. I'm not sure if there is anything I could possibly add to the current conversation other than an abnormal mix of depression, outrage, and apathy.

Godspeed.
