Is there something in the water, is this a coincidence…or what? Yet another mass shooting…this time in Florida:

One person was killed and at least seven others were wounded in a shooting incident inside a downtown Orlando high-rise building Friday morning, authorities said.

Quoting emergency dispatchers, NBC station WESH-TV of Orlando reported that the incident began about 11:30 a.m. ET on the fourth floor of the Gateway Center at 1000 Legion Place near Lake Ivanhoe.

All patients were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. At least four of the eight patients were reported to be seriously wounded.

    Of all people to bust the funny….

    “Is there something in the water, is this a coincidence…or what? ”

    Monkey see, monkey do..

    I told you.

    The media plays a part in sparking these types of things. I suggest another topic.

    Got the title wrong. Should have been “PR Nationalism Terrorist shoots 8 in Orlando”, then key-worded war.

    Oops. Forgot. “Possible” and don’t forget, “policy” doesn’t allow changes even if the title is inacurate, misleading, or worse — like World Nut Daily titles.

    Wait – where’s the obligatory title comment about terrorism and war? All you have to do is put “possible” in the title and everything is okay – there is magically no reason to worry about the facts. You can lie straight out of your butt. And then we can all gather round and make fun of anyone who is upset by the fact that the deaths of our soldiers are not worth ten seconds worth of honesty. Yep, that’s what’s missing here.

    Some callers on SF radio said it was all George Bush’s fault….
