Democratic congresswoman assassinated

Now they've done it.

This is the day I had long feared, but the reality of it never sinks in until it happens.

Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was assassinated at an event in Tucson today around 10 AM MST (noon EST). Five others were also reportedly killed in the shooting.

Words cannot sufficiently describe today's events.


  1. According to reports that were just released, Giffords may have survived the shooting. The shooter is reportedly in custody.

  2. CNN now says she's in surgery but earlier it reported Arizona police said she'd died.
