Legislated Evil

If you haven't watched the Daily show this week, I really recommend going back to watch these full episodes. They have just been brilliant critiques of the failures of the media around Boston and the congressional failures on gun control.

Jon says in this clip what I have wanted to say all week. We spend immense amount of time and energy on things that kill only a few people, but fail to act on things that kill millions. Reminds me of the days Naomi Klein's book: The Shock Doctrine. We just bounce from issue to issue hearing emotional arguments on the most dramatic versions of the news of the day.
