There might have been a time when the murder of nearly 50 people might cause the country to step back and re-evaluate how hatred begins. Maybe pull a little closer together. Maybe give each other a break.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
