Blather.net has been running a continually updated thread on the Arizona tragedy and conspiracy theory. Some of the material originated here, but there’s a lot that I haven’t covered.
Richard Florida has an eye-opening post on the geography of gun-related deaths at the Atlantic.

Rachel Tabachnick has a must-read post at Talk2Action on Sarah Palin and the “blood libel” dog whistle.
