The weekend news

Busy weekend coming up. Just getting down a quick note before I have to drop Wump off at her circus performance. They’re rehearsing for a couple of hours and then we’re all going back to watch.

Yesterday, there was a shooting in Australia. The worst since the Port Arthur Massacre that convinced the Australian government to do something about guns. Seven people, including four children, were killed in a murder-suicide. This is still a far cry from the thirty-five who died in Port Arthur, but even so, it’s awful. And it happened just outside my sister’s home town, Margaret River. They knew the family, taught the kids, helped sell and buy their houses. A tiny community like that, of course they all know each other.

I’m just glad events like this are a tragic aberration rather than a daily fact of life. My heart goes out to the whole community and all those bereaved by the loss.

I don’t really have an All Deadpool, All The Time to share today. Maybe tomorrow. Edpool did a bit of marketing though.
