Due to circumstances beyond my control, I haven’t been able to keep up with Sandy Hook-related news on this blog. Apologies.
Just for the record, two important developments have come and gone in the past month.
First: In late November, the father of Noah Pozner (Lenny Pozner aka many other names) dropped his civil lawsuit against Wolfgang Halbig. This is good but old news. Click here for the story.
Second: In the jury trial between James Tracy and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) just a few days ago, the jury ruled against Mr. Tracy. Click here for the bad news.
Oddly, or perhaps not, just hours after the verdict in that case, the attorney for FAU, Gerard Joseph Curley Jr., became one of two judges appointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott. Click here for that.
Five years out and the Sandy Hook event of 12-14-12 is still commanding media attention, emotion and, of course, dollars. The MSM has made sure of it.
But I’m still betting on the power of private reflection. On children getting older, growing up, moving away and having time to think about the past. Ultimately, talking.
