Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) Shot

She was holding a “Congress on Your Corner” event outside a Tucson Safeway.  Reports are sketchy — CNN says at least twelve people were injured.  Please send good thoughts and prayers to Tucson.  It doesn’t sound good.

UPDATE:  NPR is reporting that Rep. Giffords and six pokies through shirts others are dead.  I don’t know what to say.  My sympathies to all the family members and friends who lost their loved ones today.

2nd UPDATE:  CNN had a hospital spokeswoman on who says Rep. Giffords is in surgery.  My hopes are with her.

    Now they’re saying she’s not dead. But others are dead. Dear God, she was only 40.

  2. Del says:

    My husband heard a report that she was responding to commands. That’s got to be good. But one of the dead is a nine-year-old. And now the FBI is saying there was another person involved besides the Jared guy.

    A nine-year-old. The poor parents — I can’t imagine the pain they’re in. How twisted does someone have to be to do something like this?
