Again, shattered young lives

Written by Peter Smith on .

Heath2

Less than two months ago, I was visiting Paducah, Ky., when this event appeared on the screen in the hotel lobby. It was a memorial service held 20 years after a student went on a shooting rampage at nearby Heath High School, killing three and injuring others, at least one of whom is in the front row at right.

And was it only yesterday that Alex Hribal was sentenced for his bloody rampage at Franklin Regional High School?

Now, once again in western Kentucky, we have young people shot, two of them killed, and many more wounded physically and psychically, allegedly by yet another teenage gunman. 

That it happened twice in one small region, to victims who did nothing wrong but to go to school as the grownups around them expected to, is horrifying enough.

That it happens so often that we barely notice unless the casualty count is high, is even more of a travesty. 

This devastating story in the Daily Beast tells how the New Mexico shooter (remember that one?) lurked for years on extremist sites online, where school shooters were sickeningly glorified. 

We owe it to the survivors and the memories of the loved ones to do better than we have, so that when they hold the 20th annual memorial service at Marshall County High School, these things will be a rarity.

Donald Trump is the Hannibal Lecter of presidents. He had dreamers for dinner.

Great Power

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Trump and the GOP are trying to blame democrats for the government shutdown. So, republicans own the House Senate and the Presidency ... but it's the democrats fault? How delusional can you be?
