News (or lack therof) about Moore

As a sidelight, there have been articles on the Moore decision in the local TV stations based out of Illinois, but deafening silence on the national news media. I watched NBC both days after the decision to see what Brian Williams had to say, but no mention was made of it. I guess they're operating under the delusion that if you just ignore that horrid thing, it'll go away!
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
