Just heard on the morning news that congress has announced its suspending all legislative action for ONE WEEK to honor the shooting victims and to mourn.
Really? A week off?
We had a trooper shot and killed, and the police kept working. Our hospital had a patient shoot his wife and self in our ICU, and we all kept working. We've all witnessed tragedy and kept working. Who else gives themselves and and an entire institution a week off??
Don't mean to sound insensitive, but the vast majority of these people were a thousand miles away and many didn't even know the victims. A week off sounds a little excessive.
