Like the rest of you, I’m pretty much preoccupied with the Colorado shooting today. I’ll try find something cute to write about later, but meanwhile: This tweet—since deleted—was sent out this morning to 16,000 followers of the NRA’s American Rifleman Journal. Here’s another rather phenomenally dumbass Twitter misfire of the day. Also on the Twitter front: We could rely on the fact that at least one person would provide a first-person Twitter account of the attack, and somebody did. And then, probably wisely, she backed out of the picture.
Also: I’d be curious to know what you guys think of this Anthony Lane piece on the New Yorker’s website about whether movies inspire violence. It’s certainly got people going on their comments section.
