This is a terrible time to watch broadcast news media.
Grieving over the horrific loss of life in Newtown, CT is a private affair for the family and loved ones affected. Those affected in a tertiary sense, troubled by the cultural basket-case which the US has become, will also be best served by private suffering and contemplation.
It is not a time for media saturation with “public grief” and for speculation about gun control or collectivist solutions to alleged mental illnesses. The griever-in-chief, Barack Obama, did not start this virulent and collectivist emotionalism but he certainly enables it with his always vague political references.
I am saddened and disgusted by this massacre but I will bear it in solitude, without the aid of talking (and crying) heads vying for ratings.
