Gun debates aside, Connecticut tragedy shows a cultural problem

With the tragic school shooting in Connecticut on Friday, the hot-button issue is gun control or the lack thereof, but it's an issue I could care less about. In fact, this is the last time I'm going to use the word "gun" or mention firearms in this blog.

Also, I am not pointing to a lack of moral or compassionate populace in America. There are many, many thoughtful and compassionate people in America of all ages and all demographics. We live with them, work with them, worship...

No, this is not a commentary on Erica Jong or 50 Shades of Grey. Brace yourselves: this is a commentary on the fiscal cliff. Such a surprise, right?

Bad Policy, Bad Judgment, Bad Outcome

This entry is not about the crimes of one man and the moral failings of his associates. Justice has been served to them. The perpetrator has been tried, convicted and imprisoned, potentially for the rest of his life. His associates justice will be served shortly through the criminal system, if not in the afterlife.

To those who "just want the season to get started". To those who "just want to put this behind us".

With all due respect, and let me also say I get where you guys are coming from and I'm not trying to start anything with any of you...

BUT...
