Since the cowardly massacre in Arizona, I have watched major news coverage, caught a couple radio talking heads and read a lot online. I have been trying to process the event and the possible connection with the political environment. I keep hearing from many, especially on the right, outrage at the suggestion that the hate speech of the past two years could have had any connection with the massacre. Suddenly moderation and accepting that this was just an anomaly... and we all need to just take a deep breath and move on is the message.
