A little break, courtesy of CNN

Even during Wednesday's tragedy, CNN can't help but make a political statement.
Check out the name of the city in Wolf Blitzer's "Situation Room":

Have a restful weekend.

SS, no apology is necessary. The blog exists for political discussion. And, frankly, all this quietness out of respect for the dead seems wrong here. That's for funeral parlors not for a blog.

If we wish to weep then we should go away and come back when we are ready to blog. But we shouldn't impose silence on others because we cannot handle reality.

People die every day for our freedom and we don't shed a tear. But some people die nearer to home with less noble purpose for our sakes and we act like it is something entirely different. Tragedy yes. But the measure of our decency is that we should care for more than just our neighbors.

Yes, Blitzer is a git.

I don't think we're apologizing anywhere. We've been quiet the last couple of days, and I think that's appropriate.

And it's not as if there's much of any breaking political news that needs to be addressed.

We'll be posting new stuff Sunday or Monday.

Blatting "new stuff" when there isn't any new stuff is what Blitzer does.

Doesn't have time for accuracy, you know.

I is OK to be quiet when you don't have anything to say.

And it is clearly OK to be overwhelmed with the information that there is no place safe anymore.
