* kita0610's reminder that for all the talk about guns that this will prompt, the state of psychiatric care in this country is equally a relevant isue.
* This from Orin Kerr -- "It's human nature to respond to tragedy by fitting it into our preexisting worldviews; we instinctively restore order by construing the tragic event as a confirmation of our sense of the world rather than a threat to it. This means that often we won't pay a lot of attention to the details of tragedies and what caused them. We'll just know deep down inside what happened, and what caused it, and how to stop it next time."
(And this is a really good post on that.)
