Does anyone feel less shocked when bad news stories happen? I remember when Columbine happened it was quite shocking. Now you hear about a shooting at a mall or theater...I am almost not surprised any more. In fact, one of the victims who died at the hand of the theater shooter, had recently survived a mall shooting in another part of the country. Maybe its a factor of the constant stream of 24 hr "breaking" news that is always designed to shock you.
