Bang, bang

At Least 12 Slain in Binghamton, N.Y.

Twelve or 13 people were killed when a gunman opened fire in an immigration services center in Binghamton, N.Y., Gov. David A. Paterson said Friday.


How many was it at the mall in Omaha? The college in Virginia? Illinois? Louisiana? The Amish school in Pennysylvania? Columbine?
When is it enough?
Never.

Not when I wrote about it in 1993.
Not when I wrote about it in 1998.

Not now. Not ever.
Clearly, the pen is not mightier than the pistol.
