Fort Hood...

Yesterday we lost soldiers, murdered by a fellow soldier - and no less an officer, medical practioner and psychiatrist.  The actions by the officer involved have brought tragedy and shame to the military.  It continues to underscore how the poison of mental illness, including irrational religious belief, can overcome education and reason.  My heart goes out to the families of the fallen and those wounded by this despicable act.
