“We never ever, ever intended it to be gun sights. It was simply cross hairs like you’d see on maps,” Palin said.

I don't like Sarah Palin and because of that it would be convenient if a case could be made that her cross hairs perpetuated this tragedy. However, I gotta go with Thumper on this one. The symbolism looks lousy but I don't believe that in any way she meant cross hairs to have anything to do with actual guns.

I'm kind of a gossip hound, but watching the media whip the small fires into giant forest fires so that they can cover the result is infuriating.
