I'm Back: Annoying News First

Well, I am back and it was great. I'll post great pics next, but first just a wake up call to me.

On Sunday, I saw 3 awful posts about gun attacks. Below is one of them.

So I investigate yesterday's killings. Monday was President's Day. Here is the information that disturbed me. We are soooo used to gun homicide in the US that we don't even register it as newsworthy anymore. Here is kind of the proof.. Number of shooting deaths (not by police) on Monday:

Total shooting deaths on Monday = 21 (* are "Stand Your Ground States) link

Texas* = 7 dead
Louisiana* = 4
New York = 2
1 each = CA, DC, MA, MI, MN, NV*, TN*, VA

Amazing. Aslo amazing, none of these homicides were big news. Also note, this doesn't include the nearly 100 others who were injured, but not killed.
