That's about all I can say about today's tragedy at Fort Hood. I guess because my brother was stationed at Fort Hood up until last September and I am somewhat familiar with the base and the area, this really seemed to hit home for me. I send my prayers and condolences to victims and their families, while at the same time am extremely thankful for my brother's transfer to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. While at Fort Hood he served as a military police officer and all I could think of is had he still been there, would he have been right there? I feel awful thinking selfish things like that, but this has truly effected and saddened me. I am thankful that this shooter is still alive so that he can see what pain he has caused, and so that he can pay for actions. I am not in the military but I would presume that when one enlists, you agree to fight any war your country sends you to, regardless of your support for the war. Hearing these psychiatrists on the mass media outlets try to justify what this bastard has done makes me absolutely sick. This isn't a case of post traumatic stress syndrome, the coward had not yet been deployed overseas, therefore this should be considered an act of TERRORISM. These 'politically correct" liberals who care less about a life than they do someone's feelings have ripped the backbone right out of this country. May God have mercy on his soul, because all Hell is about to break loose on him.
But, like Denney Crane, I could be wrong.

--No kiddo for me this year, so here are the nieces and nephews.
--It was pretty fun on my street for Halloween, they shut the street down and make a really big deal out of it.
--The Bridgeport Police "Central Command Combat Headquarters" was practically in my front yard, which was cool in an annoying kind of way.
--Most original costume: A guy in a huge Wheaties box with a hole cut out where his face goes.
--Transformers seemed to be the popular costume for the kids this year.
--Whatever happened to saying "Thank You" after someone gives you candy?? Seriously, I probably had only about thirty kids say thank you, and most of those were mumbles while they were high tailing it across the street.
--The Father's House church out on 380 had a really cool "Light The Night" set-up at the Preacher's house, that guy is super nice, and seems to really be in touch with the youth.
--I think there should be a cut-off age for trick-or-treating. If you can drive yourself from house to house, it's time to give it up. Seriously, aren't kids that age supposed to be egging teacher's houses or something?
