Aside from politics, what happened in AZ is a major catastrophe. Whats this country coming to? I also read that Ms. Giffords was a target on the scope of a gun on Palin's website and Facebook, now that needs to be investigated. It doesn't take much for some crazy person to see something like that and think it means they should kill her. This stuff is going too far. If people are going to get killed or wounded because somebody else disagrees with their political views, we're all going to end up as walking targets.

I hear you and it troubles me. These rabble-rousers are role models for nut jobs who are trying to justify their actions. Too bad this had to happen, I hope something like this never happens again anywhere in this country.

Of course, you can read news stories about Bridgeport and Stratford and write comments. But, why would you since you live in South Carolina? How come you don't write comments, in your city forum? I check it out and no comments from you.

"No determinations regarding security have yet been made, but we will take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the Congressman and his constituents."
To paraphrase a recent post: ain't it a bitch when your own sense of mortality suddenly comes up and slaps you right in the face, Jimmy?

We hope she pulls through with not too much disability - unlike our hopes if it had been you, larsen, delauro, courtney, or murphy.

Most Congressmen now will need bodyguards. Many residents of Fairfield County have not met Himes. I do hope he gets out more to meet with constituents.

Chris Shays loss was due to his support of the Iraq War IMO. People really liked Chris, but Bush terribly undermined the Republican Party.

Of course, you can read the news on Bridgeport forum and write comments. But, since, your family lives in Norwalk, and you live in South Carolina. Why would you want to? ANSWER; To insult and harass the HELL out of me and the people of Bridgeport who complains about you. Go in Peace and Praise the LORD, Amen.
