RIP Newtown

Filed under: Journalism, Personal, USA — derryvickers @ 9:35 am

A short news clip from Johnny Diamond of BBC Radio 4 at Newtown drags me out of my lethargy.
An unspeakable tragedy that took no more than a few minutes to happen
A Town now overrun by hundreds of journalists, TV cameras and satellite transmitters.
The ashes being interminably raked over seeking some clue, dragging some comment out of some bewildered local
Where have we come in this instant Now featured on A Point of View by Will Self just a few minutes earlier
Why can’t we let these Towns Folk rest in peace with their grief.
