Tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut

Best news coverage of the event comes from The Onion Fuck Everything, Nation Reports

“Well, I suppose we have to try to pick up the pieces and make some sort of sense of this tragedy and—you know what? Fuck it, I can’t do this,” said Connecticut resident Michael Zaleski, his remarks understandable given the circumstances, because, holy shit, what else can one say? “I’m sorry, but I can’t fucking do this. Can you? Can anyone?”

Witnesses said the gunman fired at least 100 rounds during his deadly rampage, which, according to children in the school—goddamnit, how? How? Twenty children. Dead. In a fucking school.

Also Charlie Brooker’s commentary on the news coverage of similar previous tragedies seems quite apropos.
