Wow. Although I agree with the overall thrust of what was said in the article it was a wildly structured rant, to say the least. It does not enlighten.

let me structure it for you then:
Don't ask how...ask why.
Like my friend Herman Cain always says: "To find a solution, first we have to identify the problem".
Guns are not the problem. Insanity is.
Is that more enlightening?

I feel awful about what happened in Colorado, but can we stop the hugging and the teddy bears? Just as society can become inured to violence, it can also become inured to sentiment. There is nothing so hackneyed in the world of photojournalism as pictures of the hugging and the shrines with candles and teddy bears after a tragedy, with a piano softly trilling in the background.

This accomplishes nothing. If you want to do something, please write a check to a good charity, a family financially harmed by the shooting, or send flowers to a specific person.

It is also...
