I have to give Vester Lee Flanagan a great deal of demonic credit,

the late murderer seemingly crafted The Perfect Homicide in terms of beguiling and ensnaring social media and the news industry in general. That part of the whole plan was well thought out indeed, as a grotesque manipulator of our collective desire to watch revolting willful acts, Flanagan ranks right up there with ISIS in his murderous stagecraft. Ah but even vengeful ex television personalities cannot escape the Law of Unintended Consequences because by Sunday this will be all about a Black Gay Man's garish will to slaughter....the wellsprings of his so called rage will be passed over to say nothing of how a genuine raving lunatic can get access to firearms sans the slightest demure in this country. In other words the gaudy identity politics of it all will get Center Stage...the fact that we are booking off gruesome massacres like this on a nigh biweekly basis will be passed over in Silence! Count on it. I don't know what to tell my admittedly tiny readership save to note that we are well past the point of no return with the sheer saturation of guns in this country....and if the tendency to deliberately target unarmed cohorts continues unabated then we will rapidly come down to a question of sheer personal survival. And trust me on this "Every citizen for his or her own self" IS NOT an environment where democracy may long survive....
