Site News: Today Is Awful

12.14.12 5 years ago 88 Comments

As you are all probably aware by now, at least 27 people, including 18 children, are dead after a mass shooting earlier today at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. I don’t have any idea how one even begins to process that information. I’ve just been staring blankly at my muted television for the past hour trying to muster up the courage to turn the volume on. The only things I know right now are (a) CNN really needs to stop interviewing children, because that is terrible, and (b) it doesn’t feel right to have a post about an actress rapping in a silly costume at the top of the page, so I am going to remedy the one I have control over.

One production note: Today’s chat with Marc Maron has been postponed. We’ll keep you posted as we figure out more on that front, but it doesn’t feel quite right to press on given the circumstances.

I don’t know. Hug your kids, people. That’s all I got.
