It's been 18 Years Since Columbine, 6 Years Since Sandy Hook and Four months Since Las Vegas:  Still Too Soon to Talk about Guns, Paul Ryan?
One hundred people died in the three shootings listed above, but Paul Ryan says we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax

Don't Let Alex Jones Tell You that the Las Vegas Massacre was a Hoax
Note: Between the time I wrote this piece and the time I hit the “Publish” button, the NRA has asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review whether “bump stocks” comply with federal law.  I’m going to need time to digest this new development, but I plan to err on the side...

Reason and accountability: Is this as good as it gets?

In the movie, As Good As It Gets Jack Nicholson’s character, author Melvin Udall is asked how it is he can write so well from a woman’s perspective. He answers, “I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability.” I’ve used that line many times since 1997, mostly to satirically project a... Read more »
