The Tragedy in Arizona
First things first: I hope Rep. Gabrielle Giffordsand everyone else wounded in the Tucson Safeway shootingmakes a full recovery. Its tragic that she was shot while doing exactly what elected officials should be doingmaking herself available to the people she serves in Arizonas District 8. And, of course, we mourn the six people murdered in early January, government employees and otherwise: U.S. District Judge John Roll, Dorothy Murray, Dorwin Stoddard, 9-year-old Christina Green, Phyllis Scheck, and Gabe Zimmerman. Paying them proper respect, and supporting the wounded, should be the sole focus of civil people.
