After many years as a hospital chaplain my wife has learned there is a definite tendency for dying people to live to some significant event such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, and anniversaries before giving up the ghost. Sometimes they don't make it to the desired date but still and all it results in a clustering of natural deaths around major holidays.

While I wholeheartedly agree with the holiday theory, that should produce many more clusters than we actually see, depending on the national and cultural backgrounds of both posters and decedents. The 'lull' here most certainly is a lack of effort on our behalf... wink

XKCD has a good panel showing occurrence of dates in historical documents, it'd be interesting to see such a thing that quantifies the amount of people that die on a given day of the 365.

Yet another massacre by a gunman, this time at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. Current death toll 28, including at least 20 children. As if this weren't bad enough, such horrors will keep on happening regularly as the inevitable price of the (current interpretation of the) Second Amendment.

And the NRA will never understand why I consider their endorsement to be the kiss of death for any candidate (figuratively speaking, of course).

It's an interesting day when the best news coverage I have seen on the massacre comes from news parody site The Onion (note: harsh language):

It's just too too horrifying, too incomprehensible. Children..... the epitome of innocence, who never did anything to anybody.

It is impossible to assign rational motives to a person with a disturbed and totally irrational mind. In the killer's distorted thinking those children may have been seen as the cause of his own anger and self hate.
