Required Reading

Gail Collins on how, as much as we'd like the AZ assassinations to be about rhetoric, they're really about guns. (When, just this summer, we hosted two Congressmen in our living room, security was the last thing on my mind. That has changed. Although it wasn't quite a public event, there were plenty of people I didn't know, and there was no security whatsoever. How terrible it will be for the democratic process if we can no longer achieve that kind of comfortable access.)

And over at Living in Dryden, Simon reminisces about a recent local example of violent rhetoric.
