Remembering the Navy Yard
When a celebrity dies there's a good chance you'll find a memorial string started on this board. David Frost, Eydie Gorme and Dennis Farina are some recent examples.

That's fine, but I think it would be a terrible oversight if this space were to ignore those murdered and injured yesterday down at the Navy Yard, just a few miles from where I sit.

Mass killings are now commonplace in this, "the greatest nation on earth," but we should still honor those who are sacrificed, their families, friends, and those who try to help.

I'm looking at a ticket on my desk for tonight's ballgame at Nationals Park, just three blocks from the massacre. I've thought hard about whether or not to go, but I believe I will, as a tribute if nothing else.

One day, maybe, we can have a memorial for the assault rifle.
Rest their souls.

So true.

My heart and prayers are with all effected by this....I believe we all are in one way or another.

My condolences and sympathies to all those affected as well. To our friends south of the border please know that there are many Canadians that also have heavy hearts today.
