Tucson Update: Headlines Telling Strange Story

Lawmakers consider new curbs on incendiary speech
Shocked and saddened lawmakers grappled on Monday with the weekend shooting of one of their own, with some suggesting that new laws and regulations are needed to curb incendiary speech.
[This sounds like 'speech police']
[How long before that debate gets onto the subject of "rounding them up 'before' something happens"? i.e. 'mentally ill' or 'extremists']

FOX News pushing anti-Semitism as motive for Arizona shooting
[This one was a given]
Doctor: Giffords has '101 percent chance' of surviving
Doctors initially thought the bullet entered the back of the skull and exited the front, but after reviewing X-rays and brain scans, two outside physicians brought in by Giffords' medical team now believe that Giffords was likely shot in the front of her head.
[Rhetorical questions: Why is this story changing? It seems very unusual. And the doctors were unable to determine the direction of the bullet? Really?]
All this after just a few days. It is not hard to see where this is going. fyi

update 1-12-11: Turns Out Loughner Is Jewish Too
This is an amazing story. We now learn that Jared Lee Loughner's mother Amy Loughner is a member of the SAME Reform synagogue as Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords! The Loughners and the Giffords were members of the same Congregation Chaverim. On the Congregation Chaverim website we learn that this Reform synagogue that was founded in 1973 has 140 families. That's a very small group.

[This actually adds a whole new layer of intrigue to the Tuscon incident. To take note of these facts is in no way what some might call 'antisemitic'. Facts are facts. Very strange facts as it is turning out.]
Proverbs 23:23 'Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding'
