Tragedy in Oslo

NorwayNew York Times: “OSLO — Norway suffered a pair of devastating attacks on Friday when powerful explosions shook the government center here, killing seven people, and shortly after a gunman stalked youths at an island summer camp for young members of the governing Labor Party, killing at least 80.”

You don’t have to be an Islamist extremist to kill a bunch of people, this one was, apparently, a Christian extremist. Sickening.

I remember all too well when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. That bombing killed 168 people, including 19 children.

Today’s event in Oslo made me think of Oklahoma City.
