Some thoughts on the school shootings:
1. My heart goes out to the familes of the children. I have been surprised, as a relatively new parent, just how strong the bond of affection is between parent and child.
2. I liked this piece from the Telegraph. Indeed, it is almost the only thing I have read or seen that I thought was very serious.
3. How sad that we honor the fallen children by having a festival of confirmation bias (and I have in mind both the red and blue teams in this regard).
4. Why don't Americans engage in loud, public displays of emotion about children who die from other causes, or who die in poor countries?
Who was my favorite student this term?
