A thought

from Ellen
My heart goes out to the victims of the shooting in Tucson. And I pray that perhaps this will serve as a turning point in the tone and tenor of our collective political discussion. There is no question in my mind that the anti-government vitriol we seem to be accepting as a norm can provoke the unstable among us to violence. May God protect all of our public servants and those who surround and support them.


  1. Perhaps we should bring back the sedition act of 1798:

  2. I find it disturbing that people voted this post "crazy." Why not speak up and explain why?

  3. I see anonymous, asking people to choose their words more carefully for the safety of everyone is the same as saying throw people in prison for speaking their minds.
    That's not a very refined reading of Ellen's comment. How odd.
    Mind you Ellen is a former employee of the city who had to bear being screamed at by people about misunderstood city policies over which she, as a lowly part-time employee, had no control. Why can't people have more self-control. I do believe this event in Tuscon has changed me.
    Apparently for you it will continue to be fight fight fight. Even if it is for no reason?
    I feel sorry for you.
