Like everyone else, my FB page is full of calls for attention to mental illness and petitions to tighten up gun sales. I'm for anything that helps.
HOWEVER, my friend has posted a piece on her blog about an even worse incident of violence against school children that occurred in Bath, Michigan. While I usually focus on Los Angeles history, I think this is worth reading.
Weirdly, knowing it all happened 85 years ago made reading the story a bit cathartic for me. The picture came from an EBay ad.
