Yesterday’s massacre, the worst school shooting in Connecticut’s history, is a somber reminder of how fleeting life can be and how vulnerable we all are to senseless evil. This fiend was certainly evil to have been able to do such a thing, but as Ace points out – also pathetic. It was likely his pathetic inadequacies that inspired his evil and that should be conspicuously noted because that’s not how murderous psychos like him want to be remembered. He wasn’t a powerful dark force who went down in a blaze of glory – he was a loser and a coward who managed to slaughter a roomful of defenseless toddlers.

A child describes how a teacher pulled him into a classroom as bullets whizzed by his head:
Never ones to let a crisis go to waste, lefties immediately politicized the tragedy – before the bodies were even cold….
John Hayward, Human Events: “If I might make a suggestion to everyone trying to politicize this event: there are a lot of innocent people dead right now, a lot of families suffering unspeakable pain and grief, who should know that we’re all thinking of them right now, not trying to fit them like puzzle pieces into arguments that we’ve been having with each other for decades.”

Via Oversight and Reform: SEC & the JOBS Act: Just Do Your Job:
Why has outgoing Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Shapiro blocked a bipartisan law to make it easier for American entrepreneurs, innovators and small businesses to access capital? It’s not pretty: private emails show Shapiro has delayed action on the bipartisan JOBS Act “crowdfunding” reform because she is concerned about her legacy…and, sadly, worried about what a liberal lobbyist things of her. Meanwhile, the economy – and this bipartisan, common-sense, pro-jobs plan – remain stuck. What’s more important to Shapiro and the SEC: her selfish legacy or the American job creators crying out for capital to grow and hire?
