Greetings, everyone. This week, I have lots of links related to the Umpqua Community College shooting and other matters of gun violence, but we’ve got a few bright spots to cover too, so let’s get started.
This week, we congratulate the President and the First Lady for celebrating 23 years of marriage and looking fly throughout their time together.
