Thoughts and Wishes for Gabrielle Giffords and Other Victims of the Arizona Shooting

The Democratic Representative from Arizona was shot and critically wounded today at a public meeting with her constituents. Others were killed or wounded. Details are here (and pretty much all news sources). My thoughts and best wishes go out to all of them, their families, and friends.

I hope (against hope) that this was a random act of violence, rather than a political assassination attempt, stemming from the increasingly violent political rhetoric of cable news and the internet.
