Dogwalk: Time To Put Tucson Behind

I am deeply sorry for the tradgedy that befell Gabrielle Giffords.  I couldn't be more pleased that her recovery thus far seems remarkable.  Other than that I'm getting tired of hearing about it as if she were some sort of fallen diety. She is not.  She's a Congresswoman from Arizona who, before the shooting, few, outside Congress and her state, were even aware of who she was.  It's time to move on. One of her fellow Democrats, Loretta Sanchez, D CA, even went so far as to suggest she should be removed from the Armed Services Committee until (and if) she recovers from her injuries. It seems some were outraged at the suggestion, saying it was bad for morale while she was recovering. Why?/Dogwalk Musings. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Do you agree with Dogwalk Musings that it's time to move on from Tucson tragedy? Or is it still too soon?
