    According to FOX press conference at the hospital, the one fatality at one hospital was a child.

    The spokesman is "optimistic" about Rep. Gifford's recovery.

    Re: Dem. Congresswoman Shot in Arizona

    Rep. Giffords is not dead. She's in surgery. The Dr. who is speaking is "as optimistic has one can get about her recovery." He said the bullet went through her brain.

    The one deceased person at this Dr.'s hospital is a child. He believes she was about 9 years old.

    I never cease to be amazed why some tragedies don't really phase me much. And then others, like this one, have a profound effect on me and upset me so. It makes no sense.

    Re: Dem. Congresswoman Shot in Arizona

    Jan Brewer has SOME nerve to show her face publicly. Anyway, she's going to be doing a news conference shortly, probably after the President's.

    SOME nerve.

    Hope Helen Thomas is there. Unlikely.

    Re: Dem. Congresswoman Shot in Arizona

    Now FOX is reporting that a second person has been arrested?

    I was trying to crack a joke... which was totally inappropriate. My apology.

    I feel the same way. It's so very early, but I think this incident has the potential to be a powder-keg in our current political activities. I'm certain this will be a cause of "2nd Amendment Remedies" and could be the first in many more tragedies to come.

    Plus, when innocent people are harmed, when children are killed, it breaks my heart... and makes me a little more frightened than I was before.

    Apparently the President is going to make an appearance. MSNBC is showing a presidential podium.

    Governor Brewer is, imo, guilty of murder with her promise of transplants then reneging on those promises. I'm not sure where she has the b*lls to say anything.

    I just saw this on HuffPost.

    Tucson Citizen:

    "Police arrest man near Thornydale and Magee Roads who is suspected of being connected to the shooting of Giffords and others. A third man is being sought."

    No, I got your joke. No apology necessary.

    I think why this incident gets me so badly is that I've been waiting for it since the 2008 election. It's possibly a fulfilling of my own personal prophecy. I hope it's not that.

    There's a news outlet in Tucson whose call letters are KGUN? Seriously?

    A conspiracy. I'd feel better if it was a single nut-job.

    I'm afraid it will turn out to be that. The violent rhetoric was just too loud and too wide-spread to have not inspired some people.
