Tuesday Stuff

(Hopefully back to something like normal posting tomorrow...)

Rachel Maddow reviews the Tucson shootings (and some of the others in our infamous history) with former ATF agent Edgar Domenech, who was the agent who investigated the Virginia Tech massacre (as I've said many times, the voices that should matter above all others on the gun issue are that of law enforcement and our emergency medical personnel, and her comment on this tonight was good also - haven't found it yet...by the way, I'd like to see Maddow and some other commentators note just how much money this country makes selling weapons to the rest of the world; dare I call this "the chickens coming home to roost" a bit? And the lunacy of letting the assault weapons ban expire in 2004 is clearly evident and doesn't need much amplification from me)...

...and by the way, if anybody wants to write an "anti-gun" song out of this (or, at the very least, an "anti-acting-stupid-with-a-gun" song), here's a pretty good one to try and imitate (the big finish gets cut off a bit, but you get the idea).
