RedEye's Abbreviated Week in Review


So  much gun violence, so little time to write about it.....real life duties and obligations are calling.

Para Quoting The Rude Pundit, if you wanted to make a case for mental illness as the primary cause of gun violence all you had to do was watch the Senate Judiciary Committee  hearings on gun violence in the Wild Wild West, I mean, the United States of America on TeeVee.

Today's Must Read
10 Pro Gun Myths Shot Down (pun intended)

Meanwhile in Sweet Home Alabama, the republican state Senator who replaced the Democratic state Senator said he will make protecting the unborn his top legislative priority.  I guess that means children who are born on their own.

If it's February it's  Black History Month!  Have you ever wondered why Black History month is the shortest coldest month of the year?
Yes, February is the shortest month of the year. However, Kwanzaa runs from December 26 to January 1, and no sooner is it over, than we begin to think of Martin Luther King whose birthday is celebrated on the second Monday in January. And right after the King holiday, we begin to prepare for Black History Month. Therefore, the 64 days between December 26 and February 28, are, in reality, Black History Season. Thus, for the bulk of the winter we have the opportunity, and the encouragement, to celebrate and meditate upon what we have accomplished against all odds.
