I was at one of my most favorite places today and followed a link here. It’s the classic bad guy doesn’t follow the law and has evil intentions, good guys say not today and save the day kind of story. Now, I find this kind of story to be a happy one. I get all glowy inside when I see the world working as it should. Innocent lives were not allowed to be terrorized by a mad man. Matt Lauer with his smug little smile and condescending tone didn’t get to sit down and re-traumatize victims with accusing questions. Joe Biden couldn’t claim the gunman looked like his son. I thought to myself, every single person on earth will be happy, happy, happy knowing all is well at the South Side Freewill Baptist Church.
Well, not everyone. Not my good friend Joan and her posse. How sad for them.
There is no one to light a candle for. There is no lynch mob to be called. There is no way to twist and turn this into some kind of self promoting lie. There is no blood to dance in.
Bad guy is in jail. Good guys are alive. Joan would probably pissed off(if she was aware of the story which she probably isn’t). Sounds like a good day.
