Sandy Hook Sadness

IMG_0111When mass killings occur like the one Friday in Newtown, Conn., talking heads rush to unearth the murderer’s motive.

It is a waste of time.

I can tell you exactly why Adam Lanza put a barrage of bullets through 20 first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

He was fucked up.

Nobody with rational thoughts breaks into an elementary school and slaughters innocents. It simply doesn’t happen.

The United States hasn’t cornered the market on crazies. Adam Lanzas have been walking the Earth for thousands of years.

But they haven’t had the ability to mow down people at this rate, especially in America.

Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora.

And now Newtown.

The President has said it’s time for a meaningful discussion on the matter.

If not now, when?
