    Is Obama's 'This has happened too often' a hint?

    ^This. It's instant celebrity/immortality for someone who doesn't deserve it. It's the people who died & their families who deserve the attention.

    I live less than five miles away from Newtown. They locked all the doors to our school until the end of the day and cancelled all after school and weekend activities. It really makes me sick, how someone could kill children.

    Sorry to hear that. It must be especially scary when you're so close. I'm sure some people will have younger siblings who were affected directly or indirectly. Awful.

    Yeah, there are definitely people in my school who have connections to those involved.

    However, it's not the distance that affects me so much, but the fact that 18 kids from kindergarten through fourth grade were killed... and while I do feel bad for their families and friends, I am much more concerned about the effects on the kids that witnessed it happen. That someone could be so cruel and heartless as to kill innocent children... it makes me sick. Shootings are always tragic, but to kill little kids... I've never felt such a strong combination of hatred and sadness.

    This poor kid's Facebook has been cited by CNN. His pictures and 'likes' are being posted all over the internet. he had to deactivate his facebook.... And it's not him.
    That must be quite bizarre for him: The killer is his brother!

    Agree, but as far as I'm concerned, once the facts of what happened are announced, there shouldn't be any media coverage of any of it - including the exposes/interviews of the survivors and victims' families.

    And it's not even the shooter.
    i wonder if you could make an algorithm to figure out likely shooters based on their facebook posts, likes, and interest. probably
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
