I was kind of worried today when I heard she was trached and had a feeding tube placed. I don't know if this meant a gastric tube which is more permanent than just a tube in the nose for nutrition.

if you dont care, dont create threads saying you dont care if you dont care.

dont read articles mentioning her, avoid threads with her name.

this is a classic troll thread. late sunday, nothing going on, make a thread to keep me entertained for the rest of the day.

Well said

The only kind of people who might be "tired" of hearing about something of this magnitude are the empathy-challenged rightwing nut jobs who suddenly feel "uncomfortable" with it all (as well they ought to). You know, those "sensitive" types who do "peaceful" things like start threads asking if Obama is a racist....

I kinda of agree with you, but for totally different reasons.

I fully understand the tragedy that has befallen her.....but a federal judge was killed and we hardly heard anything about him, there was some brief coverage of the poor 9 year old girl....and virtually nothing about the other victims.

I bet you would not have the courage to post this comment with your real name!

I do care how she's doing and I do hope she has a full recovery. I am also quite tired of hearing how the shooting is becoming so politicized. The guy was a nut job....I wish people would stop trying to read things into that.

And I agree that the details of someones surgery could be left out.
Judge John Roll and Gabe Zimmerman.

Ok, so you're interested if she kicks the bucket but if it's actually good news, then you could care less.

No wonder our news works the way it does. They have people like you watching it.
