Two days after the Boston Marathon bombings, I was in Fairfield County in Connecticut on business. I had plans to drive next to visit friends in the Hudson Valley. I was surprised to find my route would go right through Newtown and the village of Sandy Hook.
It was the afternoon that the Senate rejected sensible screenings of purchasers of guns. I was listening on the radio. I followed a bright yellow school bus in Newtown. Another bus passed going the other way on Connecticut Route 25. They were probably buses taking students home from after-school activities.
