Who was that tanned man in the tan suit attempting to reign in non-investigative pale-faced press, hell bent on colossally multiplying public hysteria, to terrify TV gossip addicts into thinking the second coming of a President rushing to pre-emptive war, with no exit strategy, was at hand?

It's tragic when media turns a vital to our nation's health and survival story, into a circus obscuring family loss, need for both social and militarizing police rethinking, and an as yet un-arrested perpetrator, into movie-of-the-week misdirection -- but when social media leads cyberspace in the tan suit with no strategy chatter, then our intellectual power to perceive some degree of rational discernment in applying military power, has been twisted all atwitter, stumbling into FB talking heads.
