I would like to say thank you to President Obama today for using words like "reflection" and "thoughts" along with "praying" and "prayers" in relation to the recent violence in Arizona. I especially appreciated this statement today regarding a moment of silence: "It will be a time for us to come together as a nation in prayer or reflection, keeping the victims and their families closely at heart." Thanks for the "or," Mr. President. What a small word.

Amy that is a welcome departure from the prototypical demagoguery of political speech. Now if only he would come out as an atheist. . .
