Default Four Unhurt When Gas Stove Fails To Explode

Something good has come from the lastest round of dead school kids who were shot by one of their peers: we don't have to watch Hitme Woosten re-runs on the news anymore.

I can't help but wonder how many boys daydream about being the next "Columbine Kid" after watching the media giving endless coverage to the latest copycat. (Girls don't seem to shoot large numbers of people).

If the media handled it like, just for instance, a bad drug deal shooting; one report that day and maybe another when the case wound up, it would be better for us all. For the next week or two this case is going to be all over the news, there will be endless interviews with parents, teachers, students, "experts," ad nauseum. And some kid will be watching all this, thinking all he has to do to earn his immortality is open Dad's gun closet and head down to school.

I must stay informed on the critical topics of the day! Like the Santorum campaign's latest stupid comment:

Umm, I just read it. Most likely you didn't.

Why is it stupid?

Nancy Grace has GOT to put something on the air other than toddlers (allegedly) smothered by their s.l.u.t.t.y. mothers so they'll have more time to party....







(HAHAH, NANNY G-SPOT!)

It's stupid because Romney has so much money that whatever he spends in Michigan is irrelevant. The Super PACs see to that. He'll outspend everyone else by an order of magnitude. It's stupid because it's political BS where a losing candidate attempts to find anything at all to make it look like somehow they're winning. He's not.

Just like Cain, Bachmann, ad nauseum, as soon as people started finding out what Santorum is really like, they threw up in their mouths and went the other way. He's done, toast, fin, history, yesterday's newspaper....

Fo Mo Yeas.

Exactly right. These kids are looking for attention, infamy and immortality. The media serves it up for the taking. Take away the drama and you take away the motive.

If I had it my way, the shooter's name wouldn't be released and he'd be buried in an unmarked grave. That's impractical, but would it be too much to ask that there not be anniversary memorials that just put other schools at risk?

I haven't hated anybody in years. Hell, I never hated Bush. I'm very disappointed in O, but for completely different reasons than you.

You might as well get used to it: Ritt Momney can't beat him, O is going to be a 2-term President. At least you'll get to find a new avatar photo!

Of COURSE Mittens can't beat him: He's been hand-picked by the Establishment to "fail" - and even if he DOES accidentally pull this Election out of his ass, it'll be "4-more of Obama", just like Obama was "4-more of Bush", and Bush was "8-more of Clinton", ad nauseum, ad infinitum....
