McGrath, my "shouting down" comment wasn't in reference to you, and I apologize for making appear as such.
Really, I only meant to say that cool heads should prevail when tragedies like this occur. There should be room for both working through grief, and working through a tragedy that will have political fallout, regardless of whether some people believe there are no political aspects to the event at all. The #1 politician in America made the official announcement--the president of the US. The quote above from ABC News shows there are clearly political concerns related to this tragedy.
I started an obituary thread, in hopes that those who are grieving get the space they need to share their grief there. Perhaps we could agree to keep this thread for those who want to express their political concerns too.
