Not to be a hypocrite from the u2 thread, but thank God for that at least. Praying for the same for as many as possible.

I must update that: apparently not all of the band members are yet accounted for according to a Facebook statement by the band.

Translation:
I'm still inside the Bataclan. First floor. Badly hurt! They have to hurry with the assault. There are survivors inside. They are executing everybody. One by one. First floor hurry!!

Fucking terrifying. I have a good friend who I work with (he's in another department) from Paris, his whole family lives there. He was frightened during Charlie Hebdo and I can only imagine how distraught he is now.

They are still trying to find all of their crew. It's chilling, because that could be any of us.

Oh and in other news Newt Gingrich is still an asshole.

I can't put my words into the right order to express my rage over that tweet.

Actually we don't have to imagine what happens when people bring guns into theaters, Newt.

Jesus, I was just on the phone with Travis, and he made a JOKE about the right issuing some statement like that. It didn't even take 15 minutes from the conversation for it to happen in reality. Fucking hell. I don't like to hate. It's something I feel like I'm not supposed to do. Find the good in people. Etc. But I hate him. I hate them. I hate this shit. I hate what they stand for, I hate that they are politicking for the media, for web hits, for an agenda that is absolutely fucking meaningless except to keep people at home glued to the television and the campaign dollars rolling in because people keep BELIEVING that shit. It doesn't even seem to matter that at the shooting last month there were people on campus armed and it prevented NOTHING. Who cares about facts? Just keep screaming the same inanity into the ether over and over if it means the bankroll keeps growing.

Fucking hell.

Already seen unconfirmed reports that retaliatory attacks are happening on Syrian refugee camps in France.

I hate to use this word, but I find this absolutely terrifying. Just the thought. I was at a venue of the same size just last night. I live in a major city. It just scares the hell out of me that this is a thing that can just happen.
