You may have heard that there were some elections this week – primaries in several ‘key’ races across the country. The results of these elections are being interpreted and analyzed to see if they can portend doom for the Democrats in November, or if they mean nothing and the Democrats still have the same advantage we thought they had before.
There’s always a pattern to the news after a mass shooting in America, and I usually tend to just tone it out because it’s become so redundant and predictable: lots of ‘thoughts and prayers’, lots of people calling for gun control laws, lots of people saying its too soon to politicize an event, and after a few days, it all days down because some new shiny object catches our attention.
Just when I thought I was out…
I tried to stay out of it. I really did. Now I’m about to be that guy at the bar who starts talking about politics.
