Gabrielle Giffords, Arizona Congresswoman, Shot

News stories so far -- where they make or hint at any hypotheses -- talk about Tea-Party mad-dogs. But surely there are other possiblities. She was apparently firm on border security. And Gabrielle Cliffords, married to a Navy astronaut, Mark Kelly,  happens to have been Arizona's only Jewish representative. That has  nowhere been noted in accounts of attempt to murder her; the name of the attacker, who shot Giffords in the head at point-blank range,  has not yet been revealed. No has  suggested that her background might be relevant. It has, after all, been all too relevant many millions of times before.

So What if she is Jewish, she is still a human being who does not deserve to be shot by some lunatic who thinks he will save the government.  People should start listening to the true facts about health care and not the idiots on the radio or TV who constantly spread evil thoughts about the government.  All americans should abide by whoever is the President, including all members of Congress. Let us all work together for the sake of our United States, still the best country in the world.
