Todd, I agree with you when you say that Astronaut Kelly is a good person, who wants to meet with the parents of Jared Loughner. You can only blame parents to a point if their offspring turn out as Jared Loughner did. Children are molded not only by their environment, but also by the friends they hang around with. Then too, there are people that suffer from "chemical imbalances" that can lead to depression and a whole lot of different behaviorial problems. I have a good friend, who is quite religious and goes to synagogue every Saturday, yet, she has a son who is now in prison for the third time. (her other two children both graduated from college and are not into drugs). Then too, Bugsy Siegel was a mobster and his brother became a doctor!
