Well…..it’s been a long time…

April 5, 2009

First off, I want to take a silent moment to remember those people killed in Binghamton, N.Y., Friday and those police officers who lost their lives in Pittsburgh today……

————————

Now that I’ve said that … where do I go from here?

I want to write something truly profound about those two incidents. Something that may seem like a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives this weekend.

But I can’t…..

I just can’t find the words to appropriately describe my grief over this situation.

I’m scared for this society. I was truly scared when my son was brought into this world a little over two years ago …. and now, with what happened this weekend, I’m truly terrified about the world he will inherit when he gets older…

I wish I could say more … but I can’t.

Novel recommendations: The Evil That Men Do by Dave White; The Hunter by Richard Stark; Somebody Owes Me Money by Donald Westlake; and 1776 by David McCulloch.

What I’m reading: The Ax by Donald Westlake.

    Your son will find a world very much like this one. You and the Count
    found a world very much like this one, except that it took us awhile to recognize it. Give him your love, teach him to think for himself and he will be fine. My best. Count Sneaky

    It is scary, and that my dear is why I want to put him in a bubble. Hello! One that bullets can’t penetrate of course. I can only joke because you know that away from this computer I am crying. . . worrying about it all and popping more anxiety pills! 🙂
