Yesterday was such a whirlwind of tragedy, and I am still gobsmacked by it all. I am also very sad that it took this horrific act to get people talking about political rhetoric, something that we've needed to deal with since the summer of '09. Of course, I am appreciating the fact that most of the news media are using a relatively slow approach to the gathering of news on this story, and that is saying something. Hopefully, and in due time, we will learn what motivated a young man to do the unspeakable, and justice will be served.
A friend of mine let me know that The Daily Dish was doing a number of posts (here, here and here) on the subject of vitriolic political rhetoric, and I agree pretty much with all that I've read.
I will tackle this subject myself soon, but definitely check out the links I've posted.
