Going forward though my counter-offensive plan is to post a good news story for every bad news story I see, and I think with the videos are harder for people to just explain away than are statistics that on this subject nobody seems to trust and don't seem to sway anyone. With a video or 911 transcript my hope is that seeing/hearing is believing.
As the OP, I don't think the title is as poisoned as the "Stupid Republican/Democrat" threads I took the title from.

My intent (foolishly, in respect) was to see 'stupid' news rather than endless advocacy. Stupid things like nut jobs in Kroger or in the Senate proposing bills like Feinstein. Lots to poke fun at without debate. The stupid is strong on both sides of this national debate...

Carry on.
