  •  We ARE making progress, tho (11+ / 0-)

    Violent crime has decreased precipitously in the past 40 years of environmental lead reduction, it is now generally accepted that domestic violence is wrong (not so many years ago it was nobody's business if a man beat his wife), bullying is wrong (still a work in progress when it comes to LGBT kids), corporal punishment in schools is wrong, child sexual abuse is wrong (a discouraging segment is still not sure about the sexual abuse of adults), and striking children to correct them is increasingly unpopular.

    Yes, Newtown has left us shocked and grieving, enraged and outraged, but the above are markers of actual, genuine, substantive progress, and IMO we should take heart that we appear to be headed in the right direction overall.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
