Thanks For Nothing

Just when I think I'm getting a handle on my recent anxiety regarding guns, Harrisburg and my family's safety, along comes the new mass murder in Minneapolis this morning.  A gunman opened fire in a residential neighborhood business -- a sign-making shop -- and killed four people and then himself.  My deepest sympathies to the surviving families.

Sometimes I wonder if Chris Rock isn't right -- let guns be as common as popcorn; just charge $5,000.00 for a bullet.  The dichotomy of living in a species that is equally capable of such atrocities AND putting a robot on Mars simply tears my mind apart some days.
