The latest killing spree in the US has its bizarre elements as well as its tragedy. That the shootings occured during the screening of a Batman movie - a character who is the embodiment of vigilante justice - is one example. What struck me more forcibly, however, was a comment by Anita Busch, a spokesperson for the family of 23 year old victim Micayla Medek. "I hope this evil act, that this evil man, doesn't shake people's faith in God."
People say some strange things under stress, but in the wake of another rampage by a spoilt twenty-something brat, to be concerned about God taking a PR hit would seem to be somewhat beside the point.
