20 babies killed at newtown

Twenty six- and seven-year olds, shot down in their first grade classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT, three years ago today.

Those children should now be nine- and ten-years old, and looking forward to unwrapping their holiday gifts. But they’ll never get there. And shame on us for not ensuring that an unthinkable tragedy like this never happens again.

My friend Cliff Schecter joined me on the show this morning. Instead of complaining about how we’ve made no progress on getting the guns off the streets, he chose to focus on some of the strides we have made, as he detailed in this article for the Daily Beast

In hour two, Will Bunch joined in to tell us about his new Kindle single e-book, The Bern Identity: A Search for Bernie Sanders and the New American Dream

On a day like this, I needed a bit of the Bern!

I’ll be back tomorrow, with Laffy in tow, radio or not…
