  • The 6-year-old in Pace, Florida, who was hospitalized after she was unintentionally shot while playing with a handgun with another small child.

  • The 4-year-old in Tuckahoe, Virginia, who was shot in the leg by his 10-year-old brother who had found his father's .38 caliber handgun under a dresser. Their mother had taken it out the night before because she had thought she heard noises outside and didn't put it back into the lockbox where it is usually kept.

  • The 3-year-old in Yuma, Arizona, who died after he shot himself with his grandmother's handgun.
  • In Alabama, while favorite son James Porter was being crowned King of the Gun, his home state bore yet another child gun victim last week. A Brighton, Alabama, 4-year-old boy was shot in the head by his 4-year-old cousin while they were playing in the boy's bedroom. The boy is still in critical condition following surgery. In "God's hands" now, right?

    And in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a  6-year-old girl was shot in the chest by her 13-year-old brother while playing hide and seek.

    Yup, that was just one week. Another handful of little victims, all in the Sesame Street demographic. Does the NRA care? (yawn ...)

    You have to ask, who is the NRA servicing with their "God-given rights" and "pry it outta my cold dead hands" chest-thumping? Certainly not our children.

    Speaking of freedom and rights, what about the basic right to remain alive? These trigger-happy and possibly penile-challenged cretins (87% of the NRA membership is "male") are the same people who would bomb an abortion clinic to stop physicians from terminating a pregnancy, but don't even wince when a fully formed first grader is gunned down in a classroom?

    Sound right to you, Truthseekers?

    Dozens of dead school children in Newtown last December. Dozens more shootings of children every month since. When does it stop? Will our society ever value children more than bullets? Must we wait until their tiny bodies pile all the way up to heaven before we have any sensible regulation of these death machines?

    In the bigger picture, can you imagine what it would be like to live in a society where we spent as much time, money, and energy on keeping people alive as we do making them dead. 

    But again, I digress. ...

    Kathy never expected a career in radio as a talk show producer. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Kathy was completing her nursing degree when in 2001 - in an emergency - she was asked to fill in as the producer of Mike's program. Within a few (more...)
