I'm still no fan of his policies, politics or even his choice of friends. But President Obama did something right and he deserves credit: He has refused to say the name of the murderous jerk who shot up a theater full of people.
That simple step, denying fame to the evil, is something anyone can do. Unless you're a fan of insanity, you're opposed to attacks on innocent people. Pro-gun, anti-gun, Left, Right, Center or Up, you can refuse to use the killer's name. The desire to be "known" seems to be a factor in this kind of deadly insanity and we need not play along with it -- not you, not me, and not the guy with the "bully pulpit" I'm gonna vote against come November.
