Only Tom is crass enough to breach this delicate subject. This week the Sandy Hook parents just missed another tragedy sitting in premiere seats at the Boston Marathon. They have crisscrossed the morning talk shows, testified in Congress, commuted on Air Force One and served as back drops for numerous political speeches.
While everybody sympathizes with the tragedy they have suffered losing sons and daughters, they are becoming close to media whores.
Despite their suffering, what makes their opinions or solutions inherently better than others? Are they smarter than everybody else? Do they have unique solutions or just old ideas?
The best ideas to solve the gun violence (violent people) problems will emerge. In the meantime,Sandy Hook parents, we are sad for you plight, but it is time to stand down so more creative solutions can emerge.
