I have refrained from posting about the tragedy at Virginia Tech earlier this week. I’ve discussed it with family and co-workers, read the paper, watched the news, checked the posts on my blogroll and the posts that they link to, and decided that I can add nothing that hasn’t already been said better than I could say it.

With that said, I urge everyone to go to Personal Effects and read Mrs. duToit’s responses to the shootings, and to the Orwellian sheep that are using this tragic episode as fodder to step up gun control confiscation. Start here. After you read that, go here. If you still don’t get it, go here.
