    the phone calls aren't going to get you any closer to that. all it will do is reopen the wounds of everyone who suffered through the tragedy. i still say leave them private.

    How do you know that when we never try such things? Instead of face these tragedies head on we just play sound bites of some parent condemning automatic weapon sales. All too easy to bring an NRA meeting to columbine when you never had to see a kid shot in the face. Look at how pictures have helped to end wars and barbarity like abu ghraib. Now you're right that maybe phone calls alone won't start any real dialogue, but you're completely wrong that it's just about sadism or whatever.

    it's not about sadism. it's about masterbatory voyeurism. people won't listen to those calls and say, "wowzers, i guess i really do want to ban guns." they'll listen to it and get interested in the same way people get interested when they pass a really bad wreck.

    and that is not a good reason to reopen wounds.
