You know what's sad?

when I was a kid I never once heard the term "lockdown". With in the past 7 days I have heard it 5 times. We have got to do something about our gundamentalists and gun fetish culture!

7. At my school, duck-and-cover had morphed into tornado drills

I don't think we ever had to practice ducking under our desks for the possibility of nuclear war-- although just before summer vacation ended one year, there was a major nuclear missile accident about 150 miles away

6. Why are so many people snapping the past six months?

I am really wondering what the catalyst is.

9. some of it is the callousness in which

republican leaders treat the poor and those who have no voice...more it is because of the failure of the repuke party to fund mental health care and outreach!

13. I remember hearing of a lockdown once when my sister was in school

Now it has to be like "Another lockdown, you all know the drill" at this point.
