This week's outstanding post
from the blogosphere is a
sombre reflection on,
and analysis of,
American gun culture
and mass shootings.
It cuts through standard platitudes
and wishful thinking to remind us
of another once-impregnable social reality
which nevertheless reached an
unexpected tipping point of change.
It's a tough template but one that
can instill a bleak sense of hope that
someday this madness too shall end.
No drumroll or fanfare this week,
just the sound of a breaking heart.
