I'll bet they aren't obvious at all to someone who doesn't know what to look for.
    But that would be a rational approach to the situation. What is more likely is trying to spin it into something political.

    Since the majority of these terrorist attacks in the US are committed by white males, why assume Jihad? Islamophobia?

    Which results in people feeling victimized, as we've seen in this thread - as if the media were shining a spotlight on them, and them in particular, as they drive the nails into their wrists. It's really pathetic that anyone, Left or Right, falls for it.

    There are two sets of victims in this catastrophe: the fourteen dead in Aurora and the American citizens who let the media lead them into an orgy of incrimination yet again. It's all a ratings game.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
