I am very disturbed by the massacre in Connecticut and the way some of uscovered it... especially interviewing helpless children. — norman robinson (@normanrobinson1) December 15, 2012
With sexy Santas and Jackson Square carolers, it's obvious Christmas is around the corner (although the weather is unseasonably warm). But Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. is just a horrible, sad thing that weighs heavy on the mind during the holidays. Hug your friends and family extra hard!
In other, less terrible news: the Acro-Cats come to town, Bobby Jindal has something to say about birth control, and the Saints get a win.
