Letter to the Editor
Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:55 p.m.

An unfortunate incident in some U.S. locale, such as Boston, is not a “national tragedy.” The media collectivize everything; then media that pass as conservative oppose nationalized/collectivized solutions.

Too late. You've already paved the way. Those who control the language and the way we view things win. They control it all.

Everything is now everybody's business. And there is no stopping it from being dealt with as everybody's business.
