    Re: Shooting at Maryland Shopping Mall.

    I have friends (and/or friends of friends of friends) who knew the female victim apparently. Rumor is that the shooter was a jealous ex-boyfriend of the female victim, and the male victim was the new boyfriend. Evidently she was also a young mother. Prayers go out to all those affected and glad to know everyone I know is safe.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    That's not racism, it's that the killings in Chicago is hood scum killing hood scum. That's actually a net positive to society. Maybe they should report it as a human interest, positive news kind of thing.

    I most certainly hope they would. Why?

    A quick google search shows plenty of media attention, nationally, on shootings in Chicago involving minorities.

    This is national "breaking news" only because of the location of the incident. Had the perp shot them at home (and then killed himself) it would not be national news. Loser kills ex-girlfriend, new boyfriend and then himself is a fairly common story but, doing that in a crowded mall, really freaks folks out.

    Should we wait for it to get to the same level of occurrence before we recognize it as a problem?
