Sources: Multiple Deaths, Including
Children, At Sandy Hook School
Shooting In Newtown

Hartford Courant, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/14/2012 11:58:11 AM

Multiple people, including children, have been killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The number of victims is unclear. Sources said a person believed to be a shooter is dead. Earlier reports of a second shooter are unconfirmed. Police were still searching the school at 11 a.m., and police dogs had been brought in. Shortly after 9:40 a.m., police reported that a shooter was in the main office of the school. A person in one room had “numerous gunshot wounds,” police said.

When the smoke clears I imagine this will turn out to be some kind of domestic dispute. Not even an Obama voter would shoot up an elementary school for no reason, although his or her reason might not be that of a normal person.

Now that a push for more gun control is ramping up, watch how these stories have and will be played up and spun - as opposed to almost no coverage of Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Chicago´s weekly atrocities, etc.

I wonder how the shooter gained access to the school? All schools have locked entrances, with or without security cameras, and you have to be buzzed in. Was the shooter a parent? The sad details will emerge soon enough.

There´s a lot of confusion. The shooting started in the front office? Took place in a K classroom? I hate these early reports, but I know it takes time to get all the details.

Praying for the kids, their families and all those who work at this school. What a horrible thing.

I am sickened and shaken to the core. I spend time in elementary schools with my college students and even with security measures (guard at the locked door, sign in at the office, cameras - and this is in a good neighborhood) we can still be vulnerable to the whim of a madman.

Let us keep all those children, parents, teachers & staff in our prayers. I cannot imagine the horror or the aftermath except that it will be mightily difficult to live with these memories.

LOS ANGELES — IN 2009, I wrote a cover story for Wired magazine about the anti-vaccine movement and profiled Paul Offit, a leading proponent of vaccines for children. Dr. Offit is a man. I am a woman. That was sufficient grounds for things to get ugly. In online comments and over email, I was called a prostitute and the C-word. J. B. Handley, a critic of childhood vaccination and the founder of the autism group Generation Rescue, affiliated with the actress Jenny McCarthy, sent me an essay titled, “Paul Offit Rapes (intellectually) Amy Wallace and Wired Magazine.” In it, he implied

As pro-choice icon State Sen. Wendy Davis continues her run for Governor of Texas, it’s only natural that the image she’s constructed for herself comes under public scrutiny. On Sunday afternoon, The Dallas Morning News‘s senior political writer called out the Democratic lawmaker for “blurring” key details of her personal biography as she attempts to lure voters into her camp. “Wendy Davis has made her personal story of struggle and success a centerpiece of her campaign to become the first Democrat elected governor of Texas in almost a quarter-century,” Morning News political writer Wayne Slater noted. “[I]t is her biography —

Credit card details from almost half of all South Koreans have been stolen and sold to marketing firms. The data was stolen by a computer contractor working for a company called the Korea Credit Bureau that produces credit scores. The names, social security numbers and credit card details of 20 million South Koreans were copied by the IT worker. The scale of the theft became apparent after the contractor at the centre of the breach was arrested. Unprotected data Managers at the marketing firms which allegedly bought the data were also arrested. Early reports suggest that the contractor got hold of the giant trove of data

Let’s face it: For the world’s media, nothing beats a good story about a French politician’s love life. Forget Bill Clinton, Jacob Zuma and Silvio Berlusconi. For some reason, it’s always more fun in Paris. Reporters from around the globe descend on the City of Light, baffled by the same old question: Why don’t the French care about their politicians’ affairs? Across the Channel, by contrast, anything goes.

Lobbyists, on the march! The coming weeks will see the formal start of the GOP House leadership’s attempt to sneak an immigration amnesty through the Republican caucus and into law. We don’t know the exact details of the proposals, but we know enough: 1) There will be some form of legalization (conditional amnesty) for the 11 million illegal immigrants already here. It won’t give them a “special” path to citizenship, but they will likely be able to pursue citizenship through regular old channels. Either way, the message sent to potential future immigrants will be, “If you come here illegally, you’ll get

The Anti-War Left Hates "Lone Survivor."

Operation Redwings, a special operations mission in the highlands of Afghanistan, went tragically wrong. The new movie “Lone Survivor” tells the story in riveting fashion and, as a result, now perches atop the nation’s box office. That offends a lot of angry birds on the left. LA Weekly, for example, sneers that the film is all “muscles and machismo,” charging it is a senseless glorification of war. Such catcalls reveal more about the reviewer than the movie. They betray unbridled political correctness and an unshakable belief that war is an unspeakable act of evil invented by neocons. Such a world view inevitably

Those who follow politics know that Dick Cheney’s biography is an extraordinary one. His rapid ascension from Capitol Hill intern (and Yale dropout) in 1969 to White House chief of staff by 1974 is one of the fastest rises in American political annals. It was so fast, and he rose so high, that it comes second only to Theodore Roosevelt’s five-year ascent from New York City police commissioner to assistant secretary of the Navy to New York governor to vice president to president. And Cheney, unlike Roosevelt, was completely unknown when he started his climb.

The Departments of Education and Justice have teamed up to make the lives of students in tough neighborhoods even tougher. Framed as a measure to combat discrimination against black and Hispanic children, the guidelines issued by the Obama administration about school discipline will actually encourage racial discrimination, undermine the learning environments of classrooms, and contribute to an unjust race-consciousness in meting out discipline. Claiming that African-American and Hispanic students are more harshly disciplined than whites for the same infractions, the Obama administration now advises that any disciplinary rule that results in a “disparate impact” on those groups will be challenged

Gov. Cuomo has a message for conservative Republicans — you don’t belong in New York. Cuomo said Friday that members of the GOP with “extreme” views are creating an identity crisis for their party and represent a bigger worry than Democrats such as himself. “Their problem isn’t me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves,” the governor said on Albany’s The Capitol Pressroom radio show. “Who are they?

On the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving, Barack Obama sat in the office cabin of Air Force One wearing a look of heavy-lidded annoyance. The Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic achievement and, for all its limitations, the most ambitious social legislation since the Great Society, half a century ago, was in jeopardy. His approval rating was down to forty per cent—lower than George W. Bush’s in December of 2005, when Bush admitted that the decision to invade Iraq had been based on intelligence that “turned out to be wrong.” Also, Obama said thickly, “I’ve got a fat lip.” That morning,

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man.

Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested. Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline. “The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time. “The brains of older people do not get weak.
