This morning I dropped my son off at Mother’s Day Out. We call it school because it helps him feel big and grown up and makes him more excited to go.
Then I went with my wife to meet a guy at McDonalds about selling an old computer to him that we don’t use anymore. While we were in McDonalds we saw CNN report that there had been a shooting at a school in Connecticut. We mused about the fine line between news reporting and voyeurism, waited for this guy who was 30 minutes late. And left.
And now while my son is at school I’m trying to get some work done. I pause, get online, and learn that 20 people have died. 10 of them kids.
