That's what we get for our gun culture. We need to ban guns on military bases.

I watched an episode of Horizon on BBC Four last night about the scientists looking at ways to predict earthquakes.

One British earthquake scientist went to earthquake zones all over the world with different instruments to study ways to predict earthquakes.

He mentioned that America was the only country in the world, out of all the countries he went to, in which people (for reasons known only to themselves) were shooting at him.

It was the only country in which he felt in any danger by the locals.

Says it all, I think.

Perhaps he was trespassing. Obviously no one was trying to hit him or we wouldn't be reading about his exploits.

Or perhaps America is a just a nation of gun-toting idiots who take pot shots at innocent people for no satisfactory reason.

I tell a lie. He isn't bearded.
