Cautious Optimism

Nine people were murdered by a white supremacist in Charleston and those families will feel that pain and absence forever.

But I’m shocked at how quickly Americans are dumping an obvious symbol of treason, slavery, and white supremacy in the form of the Confederate flag.

When goddman Walmart is on the right side of history you know that something positive is up.  Either that or we got shot through a wormhole last night.

Next step: Realizing that easy access to handguns, a murky backdrop of latent racism, and a lack of decent mental health services in the U.S. is a recipe for future spree shootings, racially motivated or otherwise.

A boy can dream, can’t he?
