Nice, solid post. Unfortunately, that's the standard I hold you to every time. Tough being an ATS Super Star, isn't it?
I may be down in a hole today, but I think you're putting a better spin on it than I would. It could be desensitization, or a form of "compassion

But what if it isn't? What if people are saying "I might as well ignore this story because there isn't anything in it I can use to advance my cause

Have a gay kill a straight and it's nothing. Have a straight kill a gay, and it's headlines for days and a new bill in Congress. (Not to mention the
For those who believe we are puppets controlled by the "Powers That Be," it's worse than that, we're controlled by the groups of citizens who have
agendas to push.
