  • Finding Thanksgiving in the Borderline Tragedy

    The original Thanksgiving observance in 1621 was a celebration of the Pilgrim’s survival following a difficult winter during which 46 of 102 original colonists had perished. It was a time to reflect back on the great difficulty they had experienced and celebrate how their community was able to recover and endure. Two weeks ago, on November 7th at 11:30pm, my phone rang. I listened as my wife informed me that there had been a shooting at Borderline, a popular country-themed restaurant and dance club that our two oldest children frequent most Wednesday evenings for College Night. She said our son...

    New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof blamed the NRA for the Thousand Oaks, California, shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill but ignored the litany of California gun control laws that failed to prevent the attack. The opening two paragraphs of Kristof’s column set the stage: Another needless tragedy in America: This time a gunman opened fire in a bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif., killing at least 12 people and injuring many more. These horrors happen far more often in America than in other advanced countries partly because of the outsize political influence of the National Rifle Association. N.R.A. candidates...
