Just sayin' ...

One of the local daily fishwraps Tweeted a comment yesterday, calling on the province of Ontario to legalize mixed martial arts competitions.

Not long after, the same fishwrap Tweeted that an 18-year-old girl had been arrested in the stabbing death of a 17-year-old girl at a house party in Vancouver.

Is it possible that, if the popular media didn't encourage and promote the sanctioning of senselessly violent exhibitions, 18-year-old girls (children, for the luvva Mike!) wouldn't get the idea to stab 17-year-old girls -- or even to take a knife to a party?
Just askin'.
"And the love of many shall wax cold." (Matt. 24:12 -- one of the signs of Jesus' imminent return: don't let's get caught among those whose love has grown cold; and trust me -- the desire to do violence to someone else, or to sit and watch while it happens, even in the name of "sport" is not a manifestation of love.)
