    this 12/14 reference catching on.  The media hasn't picked up on it, and even if they do the public already has "Newtown" or "Sandy Hook" embedded in their brains relative to the tragedy.  If 12/14 is used in conversation with the general public the image of the tragedy, where they were when they heard about it and how it affected them will be lost on them.

    I'm sorry Newtown doesn't want to be singled out as the face of tragedy for the horrific events that day - I certainly understand that - but they're going to have to accept the reference.  Perhaps it can be turned into a positive reference as the face of impetus for rational gun control finally being enacted in this country.
