On the events in Aurora, Colorado
As you can tell by this blog, I love movies. They bring me joy, even when they're poorly made, or when they're telling an unpleasant story. Going to the movies is one of the great pleasures of life. A movie theater should be a place of awe and wonder. It should be a place where you can imagine yourself away from whatever is troubling you at the time or where you can be transported to places you couldn't otherwise go. It should be a place where dreams can come true, and the fact that a movie theater today was transformed into a place of real-life horror and sadness and violence and fear is indescribably awful to me. My condolences to the people who have been affected by this terrible tragedy.
