Seems like just yesterday. . .

. . .the entire nation would be up in arms over something as horrifying and depraved as this. Today, however, it's reported as an aside, more than anything else. Had this taken place on a college campus from a clock tower, we would be having a national debate regarding the implications for our culture, as a whole.

But, since this took place in the woods, among hunters with guns, the media seem to have a "well, waddya expect" attitude about it all.

In a way, I suppose I should count the lack of furor over this among my blessings, knowing full-well what tack the MSM would take on this story -- their first impulse being to blame the gun, and hunting culture at large.

But, still. . .five people are dead because one lunatic with a deer rifle decided to get the good spot this year. It's a horrible tragedy, and a lot of people are going to have many sad holiday seasons for years to come.
