When Tragedy Is Close To Home Or Even At Home

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and lived in Columbia, Maryland throughout my childhood. I still live in the Baltonapolis Area (I'm not saying where), and I can tell you that the tragedy was close to home. In fact, I was under the impression that Columbia, Maryland is the county seat of Howard County (It is not, though—Ellicot City is. Incidentally, that's how much I've been unable to get out.). I was even under the impression that Columbia, Maryland is the Wilkes Barre of Maryland (As I said,  I was under the impression that Columbia, Maryland is the county seat of Howard County.).

Who knew that Columbia, Maryland would make the news this way? My sister was angry that Julia-Louis Dreyfus called Columbia "dreary". I just thought that she doesn't know Columbia. From schools like Owen Brown and Oakland Mills, and even (quite frankly) Jeffers Hill (and I went to both Owen Brown and Oakland Mills Middle Schools, as well as Jeffers Hill Elementary), to the busstops at Howard Community College and signs in the neighborhoods (at least my childhood neighborhood), the culture of Columbia is quite evident—and "dreary" is a compliment (especially since, for example, some brats burned a bridge in my childhood neighborhood a while back. The bridge has long since been rebuilt, by the way.).

As far as I know, I didn't know the victims (of blessed memory) and I don't know their families (May they be comforted at this difficult time.). I also don't know whether I knew the shooter, and speculation is indeed vain. Nonetheless, I would not be surprised if the shooter did end up being one of my classmates—after all, one of my classmates was involved in a second-degree murder (I thought that, that kid was a brat; but I never expected him to be involved with a second-degree murder. Could it even be him who was the shooter? I doubt it, but I don't know—the last that I heard is that he'd been arrested for his part in the second-degree murder, although he wasn't the one charged with second-degree murder. Unless the Columbia Mall shooter does turn out to be him, I won't name who he is—and if you want to know, Google for his name, since that's how I found out that there was an incident that he was involved in at all.).

Another classmate, meanwhile, died of a drug overdose and left a son behind. Also meanwhile, I was once at an arraignment hearing for the at-the-time boyfriend of one of my classmates. I could talk about other incidents concerning Columbia and Columbians as well.

So, this shooting shouldn't have surprised me. It did, and it shouldn't have. Columbia, Maryland, is more than "dreary" after all—and now it's on the news as more than a "dreary" city. It's not the city that Edward Norton is (or was) proud of (and I didn't even know that Hollywood had Jim Rouse's Columbia-raised grandson in it for the longest time.). It's not the city that Aaron MacGruder is (or was) proud of (I guess. From what I recall, he was raised here—or at least raised around Howard County. For some reason, the idea that he went to Oakland Mills High School came to mind—though I could have a wrong idea.). It's not the city that Jim Rouse would be proud of, either.

Again, I can tell you that "dreary" is a compliment for Columbia, Maryland—especially after an incident like this, and an incident that should not have surprised me as at all.

Credit To LaGrange, George And Others For Being Sane

Here's a sampling of stats which do show that some people are sane and not buying the Anti-Semitic nonsense, even if the ADL won't be at the forefront of defending the Jewish people this time:


    
   
16:07:12 -- 5 hours 30 mins ago
    
Lowber, Pennsylvania arrived from google.com on "The Nicole Factor: James Holmes Was Not A Jew For Jesus...." by searching for anti-semites james holmes.
14:56:07 -- 6 hours 42 mins ago

I Am So Convinced That There Is Not a "Jewish Lobby"...

If there was, the ADL would've spoken out a long time ago against the Anti Semitism regarding James Holmes. I'm convinced that there is an Anti-Semitic lobby and an Anti-Missionary (Anti-Christian, Anti-Messianic) lobby, however. Why else would a Messianic Jew not be allowed to call out the ADL for not saying that James Holmes is an agnostic gentile who merely happened to volunteer at a nonsectarian camp incidentally owned by the JBBBSLA--who are not pedophiles, by the way (and how ridiculous of Bronx, New York to even search that they might be!)?

By the way, why do Google and YouTube allow searches that James Holmes could be Jewish but not allow Messianic Jews to say that he was wrongly classified as Jewish, since the ADL won't say it? By the way, here's a sampling of the ridiculousness that Google allows--note how many Anti-Semitic searches there are:
