    It is horrid... the tragedy is what it is... a shooting by a nutjob that was senseless and shameful... punish the person responsible for their actions... pray it does not happen again

    Federal judge John Roll, 63, and Christina Green, 9, Gabe Zimmerman, Dorothy Murray, 76, Dorwin Stoddard, 76, and Phyllis Scheck, 79. And 13 hospitalized.

    I think it would good to remember that these were all real people, with real lives, real family and real friends. Their lives counted for something. They mattered.

    Indeed.

    And Jared Loughner is responsible for his actions.

    Exactly. And those who were injured and their loved ones are feeling real pain as well.

    Exploiting that pain for cheap shots on a message board makes me ill.

    I also hope the neighbor/friend who brought the little girl to see the representative is doing okay. She must feel terrible after having had such good intentions.

    I've watched the spin masters on TV and the childish behavior by some on this board and another that I frequent and it disgusts me.

    It is a time when all of us should be reaching out with our condolences, our hearts, and our prayers for the recovery of Congresswoman Giffords and those hospitalized as well and the tragic loss suffered by the other families. Because of modern technology, the internet, and the 24-hour news cycle demanding more and more outlandish shit so they can grab their portion of the ratings there are those that wish to make this a "gotcha moment".

    It's a sad day, and not just for the victims in Arizona.

    The shootings should make us do something we don't like doing .. take a long look in the mirror.

    Introspective is not a function that Americans believe in. The only mirror we want to gaze in is the Queen's mirror from Snow White. It must always tell us how beautifu we arel. Any criticisms are considered unpatriotic, unamerican.

    We are an invented people, conditioned by Hollywood. Every criticism will be considered as "partisan." If you talk about our history of political violence, that's partisan.

    If you talk about recent current events of hate speech and talk of armed violence. that's partisan.

    So should we all just hide. "see, hear, and speak no evil?"

    That's a solution?

    That's what an intelligent populace of CITIZENS shoud do?

    I'm forever amazed
