    I know that, but I'm pretending I'm a Democrat in Congress who doesn't know the difference between an ammunition magazine and an ammunition clip.

    well if you announce it's a drill over and over and tell people not to worry.. and then something goes boom.. that's weird.

    It's the actual human toll and it shouldn't be hidden.
    She didn't say it shouldn't be published, she said you've should have putting a warning on it.

    I agree they should be published and I'm the kind of person who looks at those photos and can handle them. Other people have a more difficult time with shots like that - hell, for some people, that could trigger an anxiety attack or PTSD related memories. Next time, I think you should post a warning for them.

    Obama stated all is in the investigation stage.....that we will find who was responsible and we will hold them accountable. Although Obama didn't say it was terrorism even tho CNN is saying that's what the police told them.

    Some people can't handle photos that graphic; this is why, whether it's TV or an Internet news outlet, there are generally warnings of graphic content.

    And that's not just an image; that's a human being, a real person with loved ones who may also chance on this photograph. Nothing wrong with a little respect.

    But you still had to jump to conclusion and get your two cents in as well?

    Think big point over little gotcha point. Just saying I think that us a better approach.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    he should wait until they have better information. right now the information is so fluid at the moment, it's accuracy could be in doubt.

    I hope what you're saying is that, just maybe, is a time for all of us to pull together as Americans and not politicize this, especially when so few facts have been established.

    That's certainly the big picture of what I'm saying. I truly like good sarcasm, but this doesn't seem the time to me.
