Real World Interruptions

I had hoped to have daily updates after Friday posts, but certain real life activities like a debate tournament followed by an unplanned five and half hour trip prevented posting.

I want to echo The Madville Times contrast between high school debate and the increasingly, dangerously weird world of American politics.

I found ABC's The Week's roundtable discussion rather fascinating.  I thought Dick Armey seemed to be whistling past the graveyard as he eschewed "pop sociology."  I thought George Will's hope that this one is closer to Columbine rather than Oswald or John Wilkes Booth interesting, but hollow; no matter the reason, scores of people have been killed or wounded in similar shootings since 1999.
