From The Abyss

There was an eruption of unspeakable horror, of pure Evil, today in Newtown, Connecticut. From what I understand many small children — 18, according to the latest report — have been shot to death.

There will be bitter political debate in the days to come — such as we have never seen before, I think — but for the sake of human decency, please, not today. Hold your children close, if you have them, and reflect on what it means to be human, and what it means to be alive.

    An abomination.

    Henry? … We’re more the “friends” at some times aren’t we?

    I’m thinking of that ol’ ‘One-Eyed-Man’ just now. I consider him a friend and you too – and I’m thinking while you can get across to me your disfavor Peter makes his disdain for me so complicated I take the two of you equally.

    And nothing conveys

    And we all … nothing conveys

    I am not disdainful of you, JK. Not in the slightest. You seem like an amusing and cheerful guy, albeit one who struggles mightily with syntax. I’m not sure what gave you that impression, but if it was anything which I wrote, it certainly was unintentional.

  4. JK,

    On rare occasion I am in complete agreement with Peter. This is one of those occasions.

    Smarter than the average bear, too. Don’t be misled by all that aw-shucks stuff.

    Why was I left out, JK?

    Very little discernible enmity Dom.

    Don’t bother yourself. You’re on my list too.
