This is so ugly.

I take an in breath, an out breath. What else can I do?

Know how you feel. There's a pit in my stomach, too. Did you see on the national news about how Congresswoman Gifford had been in Palin's crosshairs? I remember the brouhaha at the time.

Aloha Kittie--
"Crosshairs" and "Palin" in the same sentence is too creepy.

I usually don't pay a lot of attention to all this kid of stuff, but this is just terrible.

Dare I wish you, Happy New Year!

And Happy New Year to you, my friend!

It's too early for you to have seen the morning news programs but there's building discussion that politics has got to be more civil. (Duh, what took them so long?) Months prior to the elections, Palin's camp released a map of the U.S. with targeted Dems in crosshairs. Giffords and others spoke up about the danger of inciting an unstable mind. Time passed. Tuscon happened. This map with the crosshairs has surfaced.

I'm not saying or implying that Palin had anything to do with what happened, just that there is discussion about reigning in the political rhetoric.

Otherwise, it's verrrry cold outside, hub's down with the flu, and warm memories of Hawaii shimmer.

It's just fucking senseless and tragic.
That guy was just a nutjob, too.
