Thoughts on the Tucson Shootings

In the Washington Examiner, I have a commentary entitled “Shootings Obscure America’s Generally Bland and Timid Political Culture.”  In The Wall Street Journal, law professor Glenn Reynolds has an interesting column, “The Arizona Tragedy and the Politics of Blood Libel.”  Law professor Eugene Volokh has an interesting commentary about the First Amendment and allegedly inciteful or threatening speech. The Washington Examiner‘s Mark Hemingway writes about ideological double-standards when it comes to press coverage of threats against public officials. Michelle Malkin has a commentary entitled “Idiocracy: Conservatives Who Say ‘Job-Killing’ Are Spreading Hate,” about the silly new liberal meme falsely depicting opposition to regulations as hate speech.
