BRIEFLY ON VA TECH
How predictable is AM talk radio? Not even 12 hours had passed since the massacre earlier this week and all you heard were gun control debates. The idea that every single tragedy has to to be spun into political rhetoric of who's to blame makes me nauseas. To imply that this shooting wouldn't have happened if certain laws were or weren't in place is absolutely assinine. If you think gun control would have stopped this you've got your head in the sand, and if you think it's a good idea to allow students to arm themselves on campus so this couldn't happen you're a complete maniac too.

And then there's Michael Savage who, predictably, was ranting that the guy shouldn't have even been allowed in the country, even though he and his parents were legally here. Great take (although, to be fair, Savage is really more circus act than serious opinion maker).

How about this for a take: Certain crap is gonna always happen that you can't control. Next topic.
