 A Teachable Moment

We have all been struggling to make sense of the human catastrophe that hit Newtown, CT, last week. It is hard to imagine anyone who was not shocked beyond his or her cynical composure. But not our angry friend, whose pity is exclusively reserved to one and only one people in this world. The two references on his blog, to the event that has shaken the American nation involve mockery.  Perhaps we are supposed to be impressed by his universalizing view about religious nuttery at this moment of great perplexity, or by his ability to make hay of whatever sun shines upon his explicit agenda.

He is a man of the world, seen all done that. He knows what our sympathetic priorities should be.

Perhaps it is his way of settling accounts with Western media.
