    Looks like Times changed its original headline about the victims being "a football player, two others", which wasn't great.

    Yeah, my class always introduced our heroic football gods at our reunions. Those guys didn't win a game as seniors.

    This may sound rough, but I find the total apathy among political leaders that anything can be done to be more tragic than than any single gun incident. We've seen the measures congress will go to fight A, B and C, and yet they choose to throw up their hands and just accept these things. Maybe a law wouldn't prevent a single shooting, but at least it would show that Congress recognized the problem and was willing to work for a solution. Life begins at conception - after you are born - you are on your own.

    I don't think Jerry Jeff Walker had this in mind when he sang "Here's to old Skinny Dennis."
