Sniping at Snipers II

Living just off the Beltway and across the street from an elementary school, with my own private police officer parked in front of our house every day, I know I shouldn’t make light of the sniper business. (On the other hand, I recall from childhood my upper crust British aunt who rode out the Blitz in London in 1940, describing how put out they were when the Luftwaffe’s nightly raid arrived early and interrupted the dessert course. Where is that spirit today? I’m afraid it died with Churchill, who, recall, opposed evacuatng England’s children to Canada. . .)

So when I heard the sniper’s message this afternoon that "your children aren’t safe any time, any place," my first thought was: "Isn’t that the motto of the Children’s Defense Fund, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Ralph Nader, and both Clintons??"
