POINTS OF COLOR
October 10, 2015
In yesterday’s blog post there was an item about the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. President Obama flew out to comfort the families–and prompted protests by Roseburg residents that Obama was merely using his visit to impose a gun-control mindset–which they opposed 100%. Meanwhile, exemplifying the nutsyness of the presidential campaign, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Obama’s Oregon visit manipulative and “obscene.” Criticism of Obama got equal play in some news venues to the fact that as the president was in Roseburg, there were two more college shootings. At Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ, the tally was one fatality and three wounded. And at a residential site for Texas Southern University students, there was one dead and one wounded. This is turning into a new NCAA sport.
