The day after The Dark Knight Rises opened wasn't the day.
Monday morning in Wisconsin wasn't the day.
It's no secret in my family that I am fanatically opposed to violence. The loud protestations of personal safety via a concealed accessory make me cringe. I shun violent movies, games and books. While I nod politely in conversation where people rave about the action packed explosion effects in some blockbuster, I generally think the enjoyment of such things is suspect. In small doses, even arsenic looks like sugar. Earlier this year after the Aurora, CO headlines, I commented to Jim Dear that this was going to keep going until it happened somewhere so heinous that in revulsion society finally started to turn away from the celebration of power through violence. The question was how heinous would it have to be? Are we there yet??

For years I asked Santa to bring me a pony for Christmas. I always got horse toys: stuffed, plastic, wooden -until finally my parents relented on the real thing. My 8 year old self wants each one of these treasury items.
