What Mr. Loughner knows is that he has the full support of a major political party in this country. He's sitting there in jail. He knows what's going on, he knows that...the Democrat party is attempting to find anybody but him to blame. He knows if he plays his cards right, he's just a victim. He's the latest in a never-ending parade of victims brought about by the unfairness of America...this guy clearly understands he's getting all the attention and he understands he's got a political party doing everything it can, plus a local sheriff doing everything that they can to make sure he's not convicted of murder — but something lesser.
Well, that's nice of him to say.

In other, much less consequential news, I hope you didn't get the impression from my last post that I didn't like any music these days. I just listened to side 1 of Blitzen Trapper's Black River Killer EP from '09, and it is fucking great. Next up (after side 2, of course) is their 2010 full-length, Destroyer of the Void, and I expect that'll be good, too. Take that, assholes.
