What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?

The world would split open.

Guns are Like Sarah Palin

photo: Debbie Egan-Chin/New York Daily New

Lately gun accidents have become so (sadly) absurd and (outlandishly) alarming that they remind me of Sarah Palin.

In 2008, I received a group email entitled: Women Against Sarah Palin. Though I agreed with the expressed sentiment that Mrs. Palin was the wrong choice for the White House, particularly for women, I publically declined to participate.

I didn’t want to put my energy “against” someone, particularly another woman, especially when women’s voices were so desperately needed in the world.

I also felt that the “bashing” of Sarah Palin served as a distraction from herself.

If we quieted down, she’d do herself in.

She did.

I wish it was the same with guns:
