    Time will tell, it's a crazy world.

    News says Aaron Alexis is the shooter.

    The media is the biggest instigator of these violent acts. Look at Aurora, Sandy Hook, the Boston Bombings, Columbine, etc. If I were to ask you most would be able to give me an entire rundown of their lives, at the least the names of the people that carried it out. Most common people don't even know their representative in Congress, yet they can give a profile on a shooter and exactly how the shooting occurred. People that want to kill want to be seen, want their name to be known, and that is exactly what we are giving them by flooding their names to the public. While I agree it is the publics right to know who did such things, these events should not warrant 2 week long coverage.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    12 dead, and the suspect.

    Suspect is believed to be Aaron Alexis, 34 year old Texan contractor.

    My condolences to the families who lost loved ones.

    Word is there may have been a second shooter, a black male 5'10 with a long gun, possibly a shotgun.

    Too soon? I was just kidding, but I should have added a smiley so I can see how you mistook it.
