    Hmmmmm....

    This morning on “Good Morning America,” ABC’s Ashleigh Banfield sat down with Zach Osler, a high school friend of Jared Loughner, the suspect in the Tucson massacre.

    Osler says his friend wasn’t shooting at people, “he was shooting at the world.” Regarding the high-pitched talk radio and cable news political rhetoric, Osler says his friend didn’t even watch the news.

    He did not watch TV. He disliked the news. He didn’t listen to political radio. He didn’t take sides. He wasn’t on the left. He wasn’t on the right.

    Clearly, the path to mental balance and well-being is to consume copious amounts of TV, News, Talk Radio, and Cable News Political Rhetoric.

    Or he could have delusions of reference, which is why he avoided those things.

    Maybe the TV and or radio would interfere with the voices in his head, making it unbearable?
    People like him remind me of a guy I knew back in high school. He would talk and argue with imaginary people, clearly heard voices. Everyone was afraid of him and used to cross to the other side of the street when we would see him walking down the block. One day he snapped when his mom refused to give him money and punched her unconscious, he thought he killed her so he went to his dads house and retrieved a .45 stuck it in his mouth and blew the top of his head off. :cuckoo:
