I cannot do a blog post today without first expressing my deepest sympathy to the families of all the victims in Connecticut.  A tragedy like this is always hard to understand but when innocent children are targeted it brings sadness beyond compare.  My thoughts and prayers are with that whole community during the coming weeks.
