The Holocaust Museum Shooting

The scary, horrible shooting at the D.C. Holocaust museum raises more questions than there are answers. Not the least of which is why the accused gunman didn’t get a much longer term for trying to kidnap members of the Federal Reserve in the early 1980′s. The logistics — how did he get in, how did he get his gun, etc. — will be picked over in the days ahead. But the real issue: how such evil and hatred perseveres. One final note: while I commend the accurate and fair reporting, by repeating the horrid anti-Semitic and racist rants of the accused the media is providing him and like-minded people with more publicity than they could ever dream of. Discretion is warranted.
