This started out as a Facebook post that seemed too long for there.
If you’re truly sick of gun violence (in schools, theatres, or anywhere) – after you’re done expressing remorse, remembrances and regrets here (on Facebook) take the additional 5 minutes instead of responding to woe-is-our-society comments, close the FB tab, and contact your state representatives and let them know.
Yes, I’m serious.
They aren’t checking your FB profile and even if they’ve got the right plank on their platform, as it were, let them know you insist, no demand, they do more. A letter as simple as:
I’m not the only pot-stirrer around. From mi madre. Be warned:

Dear Messers Richard & Richard
Since moving to New York City eleven years ago P.C. Richard & Son has been my go-to store for any kind of household appliance or electronics. Your sales and customer services teams have always been top notch in counseling a purchase decision and even the post-sale delivery and installation process has always been smooth and hassle-free. Over time this has resulted in numerous recommendations to friends and family regarding your chain.
In March of this year I purchased a 32 inch television set manufactured by Coby Electronic.
I’ve seen the posts, the comments, the reactions, and everyone’s indignation. Just stop.
Take your memes and someecards and put ’em away.
Anyone who knows my politics knows I support gay marriage, but you need to stop talking and start doing. I get it, I too am a “a lily-livered, bleeding-heart, liberal, egghead communist” (West Wing) and it’s much easier to talk than do.
But seriously, did you expect this to go any other way?
It’s official (at least in my mind) – April 1, 2012 shall mark the first ever (hopefully annual) Instagram Like A Girl week.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about – consider it Instagrammers – you’ve got those people that normally Instagram “normal” stuff – but every now and then they go completely off the reservation and start Instagramming sh_t that makes it appear they’re de-aged and gone completely 12 year-old girl on you (and note, I don’t mean women, I mean girls – if “squee” as a caption could occur to you on a particular Instagram pic you’ve found one).

I’m an AT&T grandfather – I’ve got the iPhone unlimited data plan, for which I pay $30 a month over voice and text fees. As we all know AT&T has eliminated this plan level for new customers allowing them a choice of a 2GB plan for $25 or 200 MB for $15.
I know my data habits I’d be a fool to go for the 2GB plan for only a $5 difference and there’d be no way I’d stay under 200 MB per month. That being said, I don’t travel a lot for business, am not huge into mobile video and really don’t do much data-heavy on my phone. And so while I found news of AT&T’s attempt to curb their data heavy users by throttling their speeds interesting there was no way it would change my life.
