Day: January 8, 2011

We’ve not come a long way, baby.

A Congresswoman and twelve others in her district were shot today. At this time it seems politically motivated.

Here I was, ready to write a really dumb post about baking. People’s lives changed today. Some ended. Some had a family member’s end.

I do think Sarah Palin, while not responsible for this event, was absolutely irresponsible with her original crosshairs poster.

I am sickened.

Here’s what I Facebooked: “Considering today, ironic that Congress read the Constitution the other day. That thing is chock-a-block full of non-violent ways to get yourself heard, change leadership, and let your ideologies be known.” 

Yeah, not my best writing and a bit redundant there at the end, but you get my point.

And here’s the funny thing — I wouldn’t care which party, which politician, which people were the victims. I would still feel punched in the stomach.

Crying.  I thought we were better than this.
