After yesterday's tragedy in Binghamton, New York, we have today's tragedy in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Words escape me.

Clearly, one must be insane to open fire on innocents, and economic uncertainty might help push someone "over the edge" (both Wong [NY] and Poplawski [PA] recently lost jobs)], but really--what the hell is going on?

Added: before the day is out, we learn that five children in Washington State have been murdered; their father is dead as well: he killed himself. Authorities think he might be responsible for the children's deaths.
It's been a bloody 24 hours.

Prayers, sympathies, condolences.
