I’m watching the 60 Minutes broadcast featuring the Newtown parents.
Some of these people are really remarkable, just in terms of their abilities to gather themselves and talk sensibly about this.
How do you watch this telecast and not cry with them?
Jimmy Greene, a Hartford guy who came to my old studio in the Gold Building and played saxophone a million years ago when he was a kid. And Nelba Marquez-Greene and Nicole Hockley and David and Francine Wheeler. These people will be with us for the rest of our lives and theirs. We all live together in Connecticut, and we should never forget them and their kids.
They want up-our-down-votes on important measures. That’s not too much to ask.
They want measures that would not have prevented Sandy Hook but somehow address the proliferation of weapons into criminal or crazy hands. They want them from Washington.
Tomorrow should be an interesting day. They’ll be in D.C. Obama will be here.
