You are a very sad person.

Its not that I don't care about her recovery, its that I think she like everyone else deserves some privacy.

The reporters are getting updates to her condition by her family who rightly assumes that there are people who care about her recovery.

So, if President Obama got shot today and was in critical condition, you would give him no less interest then a homeless man who had been mugged & shot and in critical condition too? Is this what your suggesting?

My comment was meant to make a point how inevitably some people's lives are more highly valued by more people than other's, not an invitation for psychos to suggest a presidential assassination.


Just so the mods are clear.

Default Am I the only one who is sick of...

The continuing coverage of Giffords' state of health? It's sad what happened but, sheesh, how many people get shot in this country every day and suffer worse consequences than Gifford? So she was a member of Congress....so what? Because of that fact, she has access to more specialized medical care than the rest of us. Just give me a break already, I passed TMI way too long ago. And as far as the incident goes, the biggest tradegy was the little girl. I can't wait to see all the stupid knee-jerk legislation resulting from it all.
