Teach Your Children Well

In Michigan, the all-American horror of the latest slaughter of children by children still unspools, with the wayward James and Jennifer Crumbley found, arrested and charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter even as grisly details of their "parenting" emerge: the gun mania; the denial despite a kid buying ammo, drawing bodies, writing "Blood everywhere"; the mom's feckless "LOL" response. And Friday night, after the final death, hundreds gathered to honor Justin Shilling, who'd asked his organs be donated to save a life; from a friend, "We're all here for him, to lift him up."
