Can We Stop Pretending Gun Violence is a Mental Health Issue?
It's happened again. Another "mass shooting." I didn't even realize there wasn't a set definition of a mass shooting...it's just a broad term meaning multiple people were shot. You'd think that with all that happening so periodically in the US, we'd at leas...

Story

Sysadmin. Wanna-be author. Dreamer. Cynic. Amateur Programmer.
Introduction

Trying to become a better programmer. I think that pretty much covers it, although I could be forgetting something...Of course, this is my personal blog and is in no way associated with my employer. Opinions are my own, yada yada, insert standard disclaimers, blah blah...
