Just heard about it....can't even think what to say, just say some prayers. I'm sick to my stomach.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Shooting accord in Newtown, Connecticut
Police reported 27 deaths, including 20 children, six adults and the shooter, according to the As sociated Press.
beyond the horror of what happened, now a new type of horror begins, and that is lawyers and so called experts.
the main police spokesman was on tv this morning saying that this investigation will take at least a year and that they are bringing in all thse experts bla bla bla. after this year long investigation, they will spend tens of millions of dollars to find out what i can tell them today for free. when its all said and done the final conclusion will be what everyone already knows, some nut case walked into a school and killed a bunch of little kids for no apparent reason. period end of story why do they need to try and figure out why? it wont change anything, it wont prevent this from happening again, it will just be a bunch of lawyers and so called experts capitalizing on people's sorrow. now if that guy would have done this to 26 lawyers the world would be a better place today.
Evidently Adam's mother was a Doomsday Prepper.

One of my co-workers lives in Washington Crossing, PA.
Their former neighbor was the Wheeler family whose 6 year old son Benjamin was one of those killed ....

Benjamin Wheeler, 6
Ben loved The Beatles, lighthouses and the No. 7 train to Sunnyside, Queens, his family said in a statement. He and his older brother Nate "filled the house with the noise of four children."
"Ben Wheeler was an irrepressibly bright and spirited boy whose love of fun and excitement at the wonders of life and the world could rarely be contained. His rush to experience life was headlong, creative and immediate," his family said. Ben loved soccer and swimming. Recently, he performed at a piano recital -- a major feat for a little boy who rarely sat still. Friday morning before school, he told him mom: "I still want to be an architect, but I also want to be a paleontologist, because that's what Nate is going to be and I want to do everything Nate does."
The family moved to Newtown in 2007. Francine Wheeler, Ben's mother, is a music teacher and performer. Francine Wheeler's band posted the following message on its Facebook page: "Francine Wheeler, a founding member of The Dream Jam Band, has lost her precious 6-year old son, Ben, to the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Our prayers and love go out to Francine, David and Ben's big brother, Nate."
