why i’m afraid to travel below the 49th parallel

“The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons — your Big Guns — to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win. … No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!”

I am saddened and perplexed to hear … that a young man should be so disoriented as to take a gun, walk to a Safeway, and shoot others at close range … that someone vying for a nation’s highest office, as a mother and declared Christian, should use such hateful language to advance an ideological cause …. that innocent people (we’re all innocent) should be maimed and killed in a country that espouses freedom, peace, and democracy. For a thoughtful commentary, go to Nathan who blogs in St. Paul, Minnesota.
