Wasting Uvalde

Nobody asked but …

We seem never to learn.  We have no recognition of destructive behaviors in our species.  We don’t know the difference between right and wrong.

Surely by now we have taken notice that gathering collective crowds makes targets of them.  We gather children, shoppers, tourists, travelers, soldiers, politicians, sports fans, worshipers, and others, at the drop of a hat.  We clump them by appointment to make the predators’ scores efficient.

The politicians are now falling all over themselves to make proposals that will not rock the boats.

How about something like shrinking and dispersing public schools?  Better yet, terminating public schools?
