Terrible America: Old Anti-Semite Kills Holocaust Memorial Guard

06/10/2009 5:24 PM |

You’ve probably already heard about the shooting today at the Washington Holocaust Museum: asshole and racist old man James W. von Brunn (srsly?) walked into the place and just started firing. Sadly, one of the two men he hit, 39-year-old security guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, has just died.

I’m sure my own particular rage at this is matched by yours, and it is up to each of us to figure out how to engage that fury in something real and productive. Because, as this shows us, impotent anger is a poison.
