It would be nice if the Yaks downed guns and called a truce just for a while. I guess extortion and drug-dealing must go on despite the disasters right now.

You know some kinds of "hurt" you just can't see. In this country, with the relatively few hang gun related crimes it has, I believe that shootings like this do more harm than meets the eye.

"You know some kinds of "hurt" you just can't see." -I think I read that on a Hallmark card. Was it a hobby shop BB gun?

And I thought all the Robin "Yak" Hoods were busy handing out riceballs to the suffering victims in Tohoku.
