However, there is a part of this story, incidental to the tragedy, that is really sticking in my craw, and you lucky faithful readers get to experience me hacking my craw clear.
I would like to address the "miracle" of the three month old in the theater who escaped unharmed.
A young couple who'd recently moved from New Mexico and were attending the midnight show with their children, one an infant, and they threw themselves on their children, the mother being hit in the leg by shrapnel.
I may catch some heat for this sentiment, but tt serves her right!
What the hell is an infant doing in a movie theater at midnight?
In fact, unless the movie is animated, with talking fish, what the hell is an infant doing in a theater, period?
While I deplore the current state of movies where every week a new comic book or video game on film is released, do all of the walking dead that constitute the American movie going public have to be sujected to your frigging screaming kid in a theater?
Can you give me a side order of talking on your cell phone with that ignorant behavior?
Sorry, I am not bowled over by the mother's sefless act of protecting her baby.
It is more than offset by the selfish act of having her baby disturb everyone else who paid to go to the same movie because she was too cheap to arrange for a sitter.
In my opinion, she should spend the whole movie sprawled over that child to shut it the hell up and spare the rest of the audience.
SPRING FOR A FRIGGING BABY SITTER YOU STINGY BASTIGES!
The only "miracle" here is that our society allows people that stupid and ignorant to reproduce.

Regardless of what you feel about the present administration, I think most would agree that for a few decades, Americans have settled for mediocrity in their leadership.
Recent generations, in my opinion, have this attitude of “entitlement” rather than the drive to get off their butts and work for what they want.
Obama plays to that crowd by making them resent the wealthy, while behind their backs manipulating the economy into a death spiral with rising deficit spending and smoke-and-mirrors "fixes" like "Cash For Clunkers."
Interestingly enough, later that same day, our Man From Kenya said, “it is absolutely clear that the economy is not doing fine,” and claimed that his initial remark was taken out of context.

But let’s stop allowing our presidents to continue to usurp their authority.
