Five dead, twelve injured in Tucson attack.
Unbelievable stuff. I've been following this for the last several hours. At first they were avoiding mentioning anything about republican/democrat influences, but now they're starting to speculate that some of the inflammatory rhetoric coming from the rabid right may have led to this.
Just now, they mentioned that the shooter had a facebook page where he called himself a political terrorist.
My bet is he'll turn out to be an antisocial marginalized nutcase. Unfortunately, those are the types who glom onto the inflamatory stuff.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
