    i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
    my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
    i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
    by only me is your doing,my darling)
    i fear
    no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
    no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
    and itís you are whatever a moon has always meant
    and whatever a sun will always sing is you

    here is the deepest secret nobody knows
    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
    higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
    and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

    i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
    One of my favorite poems.

    Another American killed by police for being black at home.

    I bet the cop feels really horrible about shooting a woman who was caring for her 8 year old nephew. I bet he finds himself a god and the sentencing judge will be so moved as to stand up from the bench and hug him.

    Everyone will get the feels, and the family of the murdered will be prostrated into feeling remorse for the poor soul who murdered their family member.

    This is just as egregious as Amber Guyger. The neighbor called for a welfare check and the cop murdered the woman. This is why you never, EVER call cops for welfare checks, especially on black people. Unless someone is in imminent physical danger, I'm not calling the cops on black people, period. Too often, the cops ARE the danger.

    Two mass shootings today. One in Philly, the other in Chicago. Not a peep on the cable news

    News is about telling us what is new, right?

    I donít get national TV updates in the UK about the rain, which is slightly less common than Americans killing each other in mass shootings.

    The Senate is literally debating a background check bill right now as this happens. It won't change one vote because we are a garbage country.

    The Senate is debating a bill? Any bill? I didnít think Obstruction Mitch allowed that.

    They weren't really. Chris Murphy called for bringing up the universal gun background bill that the House passed then Cindy Hyde-Smith objected on behalf of Republicans. Debate over.
    Take car. Go to Mum's. Kill Phil - "Sorry." - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?

    Actually, he asked for immediate unanimous consent to pass the bill as is, not debate it. He knew it would not fly. I still applaud him for doing it.



    Chris Murphy

    @ChrisMurphyCT
    I’m about to go to the Senate floor to ask for unanimous consent to pass universal background checks.

    Some will call me foolish for trying – one Republican objection and this fails.

    But when 100 Americans are dying from gun violence every day, inaction is inexcusable.

    My friend is the Vice Principal at that school. It took a few hours to hear back from the family, but he and his are safe. Itís been a little hard to focus today. Waaaaaay too close to home.

    Almost the same moment gunfire erupted in Santa Clarita (about 11 ET), Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith objected to moving a background check bill added to the Senate calendar on March 4. Said it shouldn't be "fast tracked" and it might stop her from lending a rifle to a grandson.
