Dept. of Bloody Thoughts and Useless Prayers

Because I Can No Longer Find the Words

Not any more. So here are two people who say it better than I can. 

Rex Huppke of the Chicago Tribune has written what I consider one of the most powerful pieces of protest against gun violence and political turpitude that I've seen recently, and probably in years. It is filled with rage, and brilliant. 

My beloved First Born wrote this. It, too, is unflinchingly angry,
and his anger fuels his eloquence.
Edited to add: because Facebook's embed code doesn't embed, and because the link just goes to his timeline, which is further and further away from the post I referenced: here is the specific code that supposedly will take one to that particular post. I do so hate Facebook .... <iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fandrew.berlien%2Fposts%2F10156186138168035&width=500" width="500" height="294" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>.
