If this tragedy doesn't start a discussion on gun control now, nothing will.

quietly, Stephanie, I am saying to you, "wow." wow and thank you.

This post made the most sense
out of everything I've read
over the past few days.

Thank you for this beautiful and thoughtful post. "Reporter's guilt" is a phrase worth pondering. I join Jenny Factor (and, I am sure, many others)in applauding your efforts. DL

I have no words for this piece…so eloquently and powerfully written.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
