Heart sore

Better are the days when the New York Times' headlines are lame. Today they are anything but...

Iran Exonerates Six Who Killed in Islam's Name - one engaged couple was killed for being "immoral" because they walked together in public.

Bombs Rip Through Baghdad, Killing 171 - "five horrific explosions aimed mainly at Shiite crowds"

And then the news and video from Virginia Tech.

Trying to write about it seems to trivialize it.

Trying to understand it...impossible.

Here's one thing I'd like to know: When do these people have time for this stuff? I am so busy living and trying to keep my own nose - not to mention my house - clean. How do these people have time to obsess so much about what others are doing? Do they eat? Do laundry? Study? Work?

A question: Do I really want to know how killers think?

A thought: Maybe it's a mistake to think all killers think alike.

Final question: What would the world be like if every person focused on cleaning up his or her own act?

(Question to self: Where to start?)

I won't take it for granted anymore when the headlines are lame. That's a good news day.
