David, this was a good one. Dore’s take on Aurora and the victims was not offensive. What he said, sardonically and ironically, illuminated the hypocrisy that permeates american culture, where the difference between “victims” and “perpetrators” is frequently hard to discern.

Keep it up. Oh oh. Saying that, I have to add, that I wish I could share all your shows with my wife, but she would lose interest after the first expletive.
