It's like telling me that the coverage of Pelielu and Bataan paled in comparison to the footage and attention paid to Fallujah and Baghdad. It's not comparable.
Go back as far as the internet age and find me the times when inner city schools have been shot up and ignored. Apples to apples. Because my opinion is you did a drive by and are back pedaling. And if you moderate four forums then you should understand how that perception exists based on your original entry.
I stand by what I said. I have no issue discussing this with you in an intelligent, insightful, humorous, reasonable way even from opposite sides of an argument. But I have no interest in the drive-by stuff that's done for nothing more than one's own entertainment in a thread like this.
That's my perception of it. If I'm way off base or out of line others can tell me so right here or via PM.
But I'm not taking away from what the thread was started for. It shouldn't be that difficult to understand that this issue hits a little closer to home for some people here. You want to address media inadequacies in the time and attention paid to school shootings and whether there's a racial component to it then feel free to start that thread and discuss it there.
George Bush hates inner city school shootings.
