I’m fairly sure we’ve all seen the horror in Arizona played out on our TVs these last few days.  Once the facts are exhausted, the cable morons have nothing to fill time with, so they blather about blame, motivation, speculation and whatever pops into their heads.  Don’t watch it, it won’t help you understand anything.
