massacre still unfolding

Over 26 or 27 people are dead in Newtown, Connecticut-- killed at an elementary school by one or possibly two shooters. Eighteen of the dead are little children. The principal shooter, a 20-year-old father of one of the students, appears to be dead either by his own hand or by police gunfire. A second man was arrested, wearing military garb (camo pants, black top) and hiding out in the nearby woods. What's more, a body has been found at the home of the primary shooter. This event is still unfolding, so it's going to take time for the public to wrap its mind around this tragedy. Obviously, foremost in everyone's thoughts will be: Why? But when someone does something this crazy, this horrifying, there may be no satisfactory why.

UPDATE: Body count now at 28, with 20 of the dead being children. Follow your preferred news sources for updates.
