Senseless shootings in Arizona

- by Stacey Prince

The shootings in Arizona are an appalling and tragic demonstration of the deep social justice tensions in this nation. Whether we think the shootings were motivated by US Representative Giffords' support of healthcare reform, opposition to the AZ immigration law, her Jewishness, or her simply being a Democrat in a state that Palin and the Republicans have their eye on in 2012, it really doesn't matter--this is not the way any of us want conflict and difference to be handled in our country, is it? I can't do justice to this topic but refer the reader to this excellent New York Times editorial which does.
