Got another letter this week, one of those pass along to everyone sort of letters, with the message, (translated into an expression I heard a military man use), "All it takes for evil to succeed is for enough good people to do nothing." A corollary might be, all it takes for evil to happen is for enough people to preach, "It's the right thing to do".

We have just had another example of a large evil act, the shooting of the people gathered for civil discourse in a super market in Arizona. So when are the people who have been preaching 'reload" and "second amendment solutions" going to step up and take the blame when their call to action has these terrible consequences? When are we, the vast majority of "good" people, going to stop doing nothing, and point the finger of blame and shame at those who preach violence?
