Today's Despicable Act

Been laid up today with illness, so I got the word late about the despicable shooting of AZ Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. She was by all accounts a decent human being. John Boehner's statement that an attack on any member of Congress is an "attack on all who serve" is the right tone. We pray for all who were injured and pray for comfort for the families of those who died.

I also pray that this will bring us together in our desire to resolve our differences democratically, as Americans of all political persuasion, rightly condemn the horror of such violence. Blaming anyone but the evil perpetrator will do us no good. I also pray that justice will be done in this case.


  1. By all accounts, the dude was a schizophrenic. How politics enters into this is beyond me.

  2. The whole thing stinks of an mk ultra operation.
