DEJA VU : Another Colorado Shooting, Another Blast From the Past

This song is just too prescient for its own good?  To update the motif,  as the Middle East burns, it may serve well to note the sentiment in the film “The Butler” about the African American experience in the US.  Says the protagonist: Americans always turn a blind eye to our own. We look out to the world and judge. We hear about the concentration camps, but these camps went on for 200 years in America.

In Lebanon, we may be developing a fear of parked cars- AGAIN.  Car bombs = Not Good. And a vicious reminder of the civil war from Hell.  But we are still not scared of malls and cinemas and primary schools.  Yet.
