This isn't good:
"TUCSON, Arizona (Reuters) – Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot point blank in the head by a man who opened fire indiscriminately at a constituency meeting in Tucson, U.S. media reported on Saturday.
Giffords, a 40-year-old Democrat in her third term in Congress, was airlifted to a hospital in Tucson shortly after the shooting at a Safeway supermarket in the Arizona city.
"She is currently in surgery. She's alive," University Medical Center spokeswoman Darci Slaten told Reuters. Slaten added that nine other shooting victims were being treated at the hospital.
NPR, citing the sheriff's office in Pima County, Arizona, initially reported that Giffords and six others had died in the shooting, though it later said there were conflicting reports."
Let's hope this is just a random isolated incident. My gut tells me that it isn't. The shooter was white and in his mid to late 20's according to news reports.
This is tragic and my heart goes out to her family. Washington DC better wake up and get their priorities straight because 20% of this country is unemployed and they are getting restless.
Social unrest is a virtual certainty when this many people feel like they have no future.
I will wait for more details before commenting any further.
