A breakdown of comity

I was dismayed to hear news of a shooting at a political event in Pima, AZ in which six people were killed and U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords was shot.  Giffords has survived, despite a shot to the head and is currently in surgery.  The alleged shooter is named Jared Loughner.

It’s truly a negative development when political figures are shot because it represents a breakdown in the social fabric of our republic.
