A pause from our usual discussion to offer the most since condolences to the people of Newtown.
I was there in the mid 80s to interview for a position with a "well known woodworking publication". For reasons I will not go into, this never gelled. But I spent a few days in and around Newtown. I was there from Nevada and one could not imagine a more opposite environment. Newtown is classic rural New England, at least it was then. Not the kind of place where you would ever imagine such a horrific event occurring.
I cannot imagine the anguish of those who have lost children in this senseless slaughter. Yes, even the adults who lost their lives were somebody's children. I cannot imagine how it would feel to have one of my children taken in this manner. Our thoughts go out to all of those affected.
