He didn't notice that the lights had changed

A three minute video has just emerged of an evening tour on the picturesque campus of Pima Community College.

The tour guide: Jared Loughner.

Something tells me that this school just got a whole lot easier to get into.

Is it just me, or is that kid with a guitar in the background desperately trying to play "A Day in the Life". If so, the connection between madmen and Beatles music is starting to get a little weird.

In a quick response to the Tucson shootings, Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.) says he plans on pursuing legislation that would make it illegal to bring a firearm within 1,000 feet of a member of Congress.

Um ... Peter ... What about the rest of us?

Perhaps you could at least include nine year olds in your bill.

The NRA wants you to remember that ...

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Earlier today, Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while attending a meeting of her constituents outside of a grocery store in Tucson.

Twelve other people are said to be seriously wounded or killed. Among the dead are a 9-year old child, an aide to Rep. Giffords and a federal judge.

Fortunately, earlier reports that Giffords had died were inaccurate and her outlook is now being reported as "optimistic". She is apparently now responding to commands from her doctors.

The suspected shooter shooter is said to be in custody, and was identified as Jared Lee Loughner of Tucson, Arizona.

Jared has his own Youtube channel. On it, he spouts paranoia, talks of inventing a new currency and complains about the illiteracy rate among people living in Giffords' congressional district in Arizona.

There was only one picture online that I could find of Jared Lee Loughner.

Apparently, along with pistol-toting rampages, Jared enjoys a good crossword puzzle.

Here, Jared displays his own literacy skills at the Tuscon Festival of Books.

He also has a charming Myspace page.

The good news is that he has (1) LOVE note.
The bad news is that it's from Wayne LaPierre.

He was such a nice right-wing boy.

Sign of the Times III

This was right next to a colorful poster exclaiming the amazing 1.01% interest rate you will get on a personal savings account.
