An interfaith service will be held at ...

Parents ask: Do school shooting drills traumatize kids?

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Long before an ex-student opened fire on his former classmates in Parkland, Florida, many school districts conducted regular shooting drills — exercises that sometimes included simulated gunfire and blood and often happened with no warning that the attack wasn’t real. The drills began taking shape after the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. But 20 years later, parents are increasingly questioning elements of the practice, including whether the drills traumatize kids. April ...

Overlooking the Overstatement: On Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery" and Bojack Horseman's "Thoughts and Prayers" Episode

None That Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery" has managed to perennially retain its status in anthologies and high school curriculums as a quintessentially "American" work of literature is – on paper, at least – curiously anomalous. A parable of sorts in its minimal exposition and heavy-handed moralizing, the story involves a community of individuals disposed to the execution of an age-old tradition in the spirit of self-preservation: the tradition – by necessity violent and in essence ...

Universal Background Checks don’t work, so why do they want more?

Background Checks U.S.A. (Ammoland.com)- I’ve made mistakes before and I’ll probably make some again. That is why it’s important to be aware and skeptical as we try new ideas.

All that came to mind as I read about the US House of Representatives proposing universal background checks for firearms owners. These background checks have failed too many times to try them again. The fundamental failure of a ba...

‘Song of Parkland’ Trailer: Drama Students Band Together in the Wake of the School Shooting
