    about the victims, and I would indeed be surprised should anyone wish them anything other than a speedy recovery.

    However, this is a political site, and political commentary on stories in the news is what we do.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      Texans, though I understand BlackSheep1's sensitivity to such things, as evidenced by his sig line.
      I'm sure there are plenty of opportunities for justified indignation on this site regarding Texas-bashing. I don't think, so far, this is one such opportunity.

          do I bash Texas? Im a Texan myself. If you cant see the difference between a knife attack that leaves 0 dead, and a gun attack that leaves classrooms full of dead toddlers, you are an idiot. Simple as that.

          We care about the victims who got stabbed of course. That is why we want better mental health services in this country, and a universal health care system so they don't go bankrupt for being a victim of a random violent attack. We also care about the next classroom, and preventing people like this man with a knife from having access to a gun to do much more damage much easier.  

          Your Faux outrage is very FOX.
