unsure what to say

At this point, all the news and commentary sites are aflame with chatter about the murders and bombing(s) in Norway. I have little to add, except that it might've been nice if the killer, Anders Behring Breivik, had had "a little accident" on his way to jail. It'll be interesting to see how Norway-- currently known in the news outlets as "the home of the Nobel Peace Prize"-- handles this case. I see that Norway outlawed the death penalty in 1905. A shame, that.

When my mother saw people like this mass-murderer on the news, she used to bark at the TV screen: "Chop 'em into two thousand pieces!" Damn straight, Mom.
