  •  The view from Aurora (8+ / 0-)

    I live in Aurora, Colorado. The schools here take this kind of thing pretty seriously these days, to that end I just got off the phone with my daughter's school. They called to tell parents that they've tightened security and "encourage" us to talk to our kids about today's shootings. How damn many times do I have to have this talk with my little girl? I've really had it with this. It must stop now! What is it going to take to get our elected officials to actually do something about it? We need the POTUS to take the lead.

      from Littleton several years after Columbine. They spent a lot of time in the summer in Minnesota, in an area near where I have family roots...I bought an item to remind myself of the place. The seller was really nice.

      Not long after that, the Red Lake Massacre occurred, just up the road from where they went annually. I thought of that seller when it happened....must have been troubling for them.
