At a time when most folks in our country are warming to the holiday season, another senseless violent act chills our society. Tonight's the night of our Radio Peoria Christmas party. Tomorrow, I begin a week's vacation. But it's hard to feel too cheery.
A gunman in his 20's, possibly with his brother as an accomplice, opened fire in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, killing 27 people, 20 of whom were children.
