And One Step Back

Sadly, another one of my predictions might be coming to pass. Since Obama's election, gun sales are skyrocketing (although mostly through a combination of NRA-fueled fears regarding gun ownership restriction coupled with price discounts), as are racially-oriented crimes (so far, thankfully, almost all incidents without physical violence).

I can only hope that the grace and tolerance of Americans at large militates upon the sensibilities of those few who would harm others in racial antipathy. The nation's history notwithstanding, we all know... even those who would aggress their countrymen know... that America isn't about that.
