THE "CLACKAMASSACRE", in perspective
Was reading some stats last night about democide in the 20th century, and couldn't help but think of the heated news coverage and comments about the Clackamas Town Center shootings of earlier this week.

Free does not mean "perfectly safe" at all times. (Although government always wants more of your freedom, and claims you'll be "safer" in return.)
