I’m shocked and outraged but otherwise don’t have a thoughtful response to the shooting in Arizona. I certainly don’t have anything evidence-based to offer in reaction to it, which would be the appropriate content for this blog. However, there is another blog with contributors that are better able to offer more informed commentary. It’s The Reality-Based Community. The scholars who contribute there have already weighed in. See, in particular, these posts:
- Caring for the survivors, after this atrocity falls from the news, by Harold Pollack
- Violent words, violent deeds, by Mark Kleiman
I have no doubt readers of this blog are able to find and follow good, honest news sources and evidence-based analysis on topics of interest. If you are not already doing so, consider also following The Reality-Based Community.
UPDATE: Though they have been instructive, comments are now closed. This is a necessary step to maintain civility.
