Awake here in the middle of the night I read story after story about Newtown, Connecticut. I read the comments from people who blame President Obama, from a man who has legally owned and shot guns all his life, from victims of similar past horrors.
I don't know a thing about guns. I surely don't know why anybody needs a gun that can mow down fifty people in one fell swoop.
I think most gun owners are probably responsible.
But the guns get stolen, don't they? It happened yesterday.
Lots of people in this country are sick in the head. Lots of those people are young or stupid or both.
We start medicating children when they're just past toddler stage because nobody can be bothered to teach their kids how to act, how to control themselves.
Everybody's angry here and nobody's listening to other people. Everybody's shouting down the other's opinion, learning nothing.
I don't know the answer, but I know there are a lot of things here that are very very wrong.
I tried five times to write something that made more sense, but here in this asylum, nothing makes sense, so why should I?
