Yesterday, Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head. While doctors think she will survive, others were not so lucky – of the 18 shot, 6 are now dead.
Sorry, but this just doesn’t set a great backdrop for writing about happier things like beer and wine. Here is Rep. Giffords in better times:
What a seriously fouled-up world we live in… All the woman was trying to do was hold an informal meeting with her constituents after recently re-winning her seat – for that she got a bullet… And what of the little nine year old girl who was killed???
Thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this senseless tragedy…
Two cats solemnly blogging by the racks…
