The Batman shooting last night.
By now I'm sure you heard about the madman who opened fire on a Midnight showing of Dark Knight Rises. Many people are shocked when they hear about stuff like this, but given the dark streaks in human nature, and the sheer number of people alive right now, I'm honestly surprised this kind of thing doesn't happen far more often.
A lot of people will be talking about this so I only have a couple of thoughts to add to the discussion. First of all to all you people who think the answer to this sort of thing is 'gun control' I would argue one brave competent man with a concealed carry permit would have been all it would have took to prevent 12 innocent people from dieing.
And also, many of you saw Dark Knight Rises last night, maybe you got irritated with the lines, or the crowds, maybe the popcorn was stale, maybe the soda was flat, and maybe that put you in a pissy mood but hopefully the news this morning reminded you how much you have to be thankful for.
