The Tucson killings

My heart goes out to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, all those killed and wounded in the senseless shooting in Tucson, and to their friends and families. It appears now to be the act of a single, insane individual, and yet even after that came out this tragedy is being used as political ammunition in yet another divisive, insulting argument.

This horrible act will generate plenty enough rancor and politicizing later; for now, please have some respect and give everyone time to mourn and heal.
