djtopcat said:Taking away guns is not going to stop these shootings, because criminals and terrorists are going to get them anyway one way or the other. The fact is if some brave people had not fought back with "guns" then some of the mass shootings at schools etc here would have had even more innocent people killed.
Guns don't kill people, people kill people.
the idea that mass shootings are just fact of life is insane. the concept that we should do nothing because certain people are determined and evil is perverse.
this one really hurts. mark was one of my heroes. his career, impact and influence cannot be reduced to a few break or funkyish tracks, etc...in particular, all of his muse are basically master class in singing, taste.
My friend studied with mark some years back and he tells me that mark was both wide open about his homosexuality and his sense that he never received his proper due. younger guys like kurt elling ripped him off wholesale. I will write more later, I am truly at a loss right now.
