No words

People who are paid for their opinions -and those who are not- are climbing over each other to find some significance in or string together some profound words about the Connecticut shootings. Not to be dismissive of all because Christie Blatchford and Jonathan Kay have been particularly thoughtful but  do so many have to regard an unspeakable tragedy as a hat hook for whatever hat they need to hang?

The Internet's greatest flaw (and since it has become the public square, our flaw as a society) is that it is incapable of silence and contemplation when there really are no words.
