Last week while I was on airing comments from the Phil Ochs documentary, a community in Tuscon were gathering to hear their newly elected representative. We all know how that ended, as its filled the weeks news. The incident has brought up questions of caring for the mentally ill, metaphors of guns when advancing political beliefs, and gun control.

Mental Health issues:

1. James Gordon - 1 in 5 - 1 in 5
[also part of the title] "people will be touched by an illness of the brain, these songs are for them" - Pipe Street Records


2. Chuck Brodsky - Radio - Radio - Red House

6. Cheryl Wheeler - Don't Forget the Guns - Cheryl Wheeler - Philo
"we don't look for trouble, but by golly if we're in it, good to know we're free to blow 900 rounds a minute"

7. Cheryl Wheeler - If It Were Up to Me - Sylvia Hotel - Philo
"I'd take away the guns"

 In the New York Times Douglas Mishkin, a Wasington DC laywer, refered to Dylans Who Killed Davey Moore suggesting that  there is no one single place to pile on the blame. 


“What Dylan Can Tell Us About The Shooting Of Congresswoman Giffords”
By Douglas B. Mishkin  [who is a lawyer in Washington, D.C.]

Who it to blame for the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords and the deaths of six bystanders? “Not I” says Sarah Palin: “I just put a rifle’s ‘cross-hairs’ on Giffords’ congressional district on my website.” “Not us,” say the anti-gun control types: “we just lobby against gun control.” “Not us,” say the countless politicians who label their political opponents terrorists and Nazis. And “not us,” say those of us who fail to call this malicious, incendiary conduct what it is: the kindling wood that enables the fire.

The “not I” crowd predictably pleads that no one can prove that this murderer was motivated by anything they did or said. That kind of proof is a legal standard and, as with the death of Davey Moore, is beside the point. Much more damning is the moral significance of what our common sense tells us: Sarah Palin’s website, and the hate speech and conduct that resemble it, have created an atmosphere so toxic that it is perfectly plausible that this murderer was egged on by their irresponsible behavior, or that someone else would be in the future.

In the immediate aftermath of the shootings, the platitude du jour is to call for a toning down of political rhetoric. What is noticeably absent is anyone stepping up to say: “I admit – I contributed to this.” “Who Killed Davey Moore?” urges those of us who pray for Congresswoman Giffords and grieve the deaths of the bystanders to demand nothing less of the most culpable public actors, and of ourselves.

Placing the blame:

9. Rod MacDonald - Who built the bomb that blew Oklahoma City Down? - And Then He Woke Up - Gadfly
