Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
The news has been all over the place. NPR usually takes the care go get it right, but apparently only got the news out first this time, and the reports of Giffords status (dead or alive) still seems to be in question. The university medical center at U of A reports Giffords is in surgery.

The stuff popping up in Twitter are links to the various stupid things put out by Palin and her ilk. There was a map with gunsights that people frowned upon when it appeared, and now it appears to have been a really poor choice of graphic, mean spirited at the very least, inflammatory at the worst.
