Please, please, please, don't think that all residents of this state are batshit.

But it only takes one. And for that one, I am truly sorry.

Unspeakable things happen everywhere. You just never think they will happen in your neighborhood.

Worse, though, is that today's tragedy should not have happened.

Thanks to all.

A friend of mine from the Navy related that he knew the family of the 9 yr old girl, having went to high school with the dad.

My condolences to the families, and my thanks to the brave people who tackled the gunman (fwiw).

Andy,

A tragedy indeed. All it takes is one asshole. I hope that representative Giffords pulls through, along with the other wounded.

Andy-

Most of us have been round long enough to know that in any state, city or whatever there is a very small % of citizens who are completey wacked out. So I really doubt that anyone attributes what happened in Tucson to the city, Arizona or the vast majority of your population.

It is just another incident of gross, unjustified violence and was probably carried out by someone who slipped through the cracks of either or both our public health and law enforcement agencies/systems. This is not a criticism of either, BTW.

My sincere sadness, empathy and concern go out to you and those who were directly touched by this. And to the rest of us, as well.

The unfortunate thing is that there really are a lot of hateful people here in Arizona, at least in the area where I live.  I wish it were different.  All this hate here seemed to start back when we had Evan Mecham hanging around here.  It hasn't gotten any better.  

Hopefully this jackass' actions will wake up the better side of society and something positive will come out of it.

Andy,
You can't blame an entire state and it's people for the acts of one or a few obviously unstable person or persons.

At my age I still contend that values not taught at home are values not practiced in life. Obviously this person, or persons, has not been taught the value of life. I can only hope Arizona has a death sentence.

My prayers go out to those families who will now have to endure endless suffering as a result of this senseless violence.

Relax, we already know (I'd like to think).

Mostly unrelated, but.  I went to school with one of Ev Mecham's nephews.  (And for that matter, my dad grew up next to Skip Rimza.)

Such a tragedy in Tucson.

I can't think of much to say that won't be seen as political AND social movement oriented.

My condolences to the families & friends of the departed and my thoughts and hopes for the wounded.

We now return to the political hate machines, already in progress....
