Not a good morning in America.

Statement we can agree on? “Violent crazy people should not have assault weapons.” Here’s the problem. Since often it’s impossible to tell in advance who is a violent crazy person and who is just odd and/or a danger only to themselves, the only way to make the statement more true is to get rid of or limit assault weapons.

Meanwhile, okay, for those who like to quote the Constitution and amendments:  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Okay, can we at least work on the “well-regulated” part?

Wow, just wow. Mike Huckabee, from whom I would have expected better: “We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?” Uh right, because there has never been violence or killing in the name of religion….

Leaving the political humor for a day. But a few lighter thoughts.

And in the midst of evil there is sometimes just plain old fashioned stupidity. Like ESPN commentator Rob Parker, fired for saying of RG3 that “Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother. He’s kind of black, but he’s not really”

And another relatively unimportant (but bipartisan) distraction. The NY Jets – SD Chargers game has been moved to 1p December 23, while the SF 49ers – Seattle Seahawks now play Sunday night. The story says “The 6-7 Jets and 5-8 Chargers was not the attractive matchup the network thought it would be before the season.” Uh, yeah, you can say that again.

The 2012 New York Yankees have been hit with an $18.9 million MLB luxury tax. $18.9 million?! Or as the 2013 Los Angeles Dodgers will refer to it “chump change.”

From T.C.  “Washington State has legalized marijuana. Advocates say “it’s about time, but they should have passed this law a long time ago”….. Like when Twinkies were still available. ”
