Well, So Much for 'Peace on Earth...'

Earlier my timeline was filling up with reports of beatings, bombings, and killings.

I tweeted:

Here's the New York Post:

And over at the New York Daily News, "Shooting outside N.J. strip club leaves 3 dead, 2 injured on Christmas," and at New Jersey's Star Ledger, "Victims identified in Christmas Day Irvington go-go bar shooting."

And from yesterday, at Raw Story, "Black Santa shot by pellet gun during D.C. toy giveaway while cameras rolled."

I'm sure there'll be more violence. I don't call it senseless. There's clearly purpose to it, the work of evil in the world, which remains unquiet even on Christmas.
