    Okay and thanks....but personally I do not want to see him animated unless it helps us understand the why.

    For right now my theory is he could not take the pressure of school and society's definition of "success" and lashed out at society indiscriminately in the same way he felt indiscriminately molded. For anyone who may misunderstand me, no I am not suggesting he was justified in any way shape translation form hint suggestion implication or foreshadowing.

    Consumers want full blown alcohol engines under the hood as well: but you can't run them on the street: the effects are illegal. Look, I posed a well reasoned and valid argument against that stuff: 100 round mags: for what? I mean really? If you can't see that then I can't help you.

    You make a good point. It'll be interesting to see what flows from his mouth.

    while it's sad that some people would use some broad ideological connection as a tool, for political pandering, it didn't make the coincidence between the attack, and the comments from limbo, any more compelling

    I have a few clients in an affluent town west of Boston that is fairly wealthy and when they had a rash of suicides among young people it was very hush hush and here is the relevant portion from the article:

    "There was a feeling after this third suicide, Prabhala says, that school officials and even students wanted to “sweep it under the carpet” and move on.

    With Shapiro’s death, everything changed. “You reach a point where you can’t ignore the problem anymore, and you have to say that it’s not a one-time thing. It’s a problem,” says Needham High School senior Maddie Gifford. “And so, after the fourth suicide, students wanted to see something happen. They needed a reaction from the community, the administration, someone to acknowledge and address the problem.”
    Keith O'Brien :: 617.312.7194

    It is my view we have not had that epiphany on the national level. There are far more public shootings than what are reported on the national level, and I'm referring specifically to social terrorism.

    Except I didn't advocate a five day waiting period or background check. I simply said it wasn't for me. For anyone else, have fun. Maybe it has some clues but I doubt it.
