Some nuts are more equal than others

Yesterday, on the 5th of December, a deranged loser with a felony drug conviction and a stolen SKS murdered 8 people in a Nebraska shopping mall. Today, on the 6th of December, a deranged loser murdered her 5 children with some over-the-counter sedatives and plastic bags.

Now, all things being equal these two sad cases would get equal coverage. But apparently the murder of 5 children between the ages of 3 and 9 by their mother is not nearly sensational enough, nor does it serve political agendas, as the murder of 8 shoppers.

Care to bet whether in the coming days the chattering monkey class will be calling for:

  1. psychiatric screenings of "at risk" mothers, and the ban of over-the-counter sedatives, or
  2. psychiatric screenings of "at risk" teens, and "more gun laws" [never mind that a felony conviction is already sufficient to keep guns out of law-abiding hands]?
If you answered (2), then move to the head of the class.

Nah ... nothing to see here ... move along.
