    that there are twenty-seven flags in the photo of the memorial you've shown.  I've seen way too many media outlets referring to the "26 victims" of Adam Lanza, totally excluding his mother, the first victim.

    I had a conversation with a family member last night about Nancy Lanza.  She took the position that many here might take, that Nancy Lanza was some kind of deranged, gun-collecting survivalist who believed that the economic apocalypse would force her to defend herself and her family.  Admittedly - pretty extreme.  BUT.  All this tragedy has said to me about Nancy Lanza is that everything she bought - every single thing she thought she knew about guns and gun safety and owning guns - was wrong.

      I am torn about her. I think it's hard to see your kid as the other, but you as a parent should also know your kid best. She had to have suspected but wouldn't acknowledge that her kid was a threat. Twenty six other children (because we all have mothers) are dead because of it.

      An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil
