    It's so tragic. You never know what people are dealing with outside the public view. I hope Sen. Deeds survives his injury and he and his family have my prayers.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Not dead but in fair condition. His son is dead of an apparent self inflicted gun shot.

    story so far seems to be that the son stabbed his father then shot himself.

    As Tzadik stated Sen. Deeds is in fair condition from his stabb wounds. His son died from what the State Police say is a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

    The first story I read about this earlier this morning also said it was a home invasion and that both were dead. To me, it just jumped out as a murder-suicide. Turns out I was right. It's a bit odd he used the knife on his dad, but a gun on his self. Then again, knife work is a bit more uhh, up close and personal, so that could explain it.

    Prayers for a speedy recovery.

    The son apparently had some serious psychological problems and was recently released from a treatment facility because "they had no more beds", at least according to the WaPo....


    Deeds is a political enigma to me, big on green jobs, supported a ban on civilian ownership of "assault rifles", didn't support Castle Doctrine legislation, and voted against a ban on same sex marriage, but OTOH he voted to repeal the one gun a month law in Virginia, voted against illegal immigrants being granted in state tuition, and for a bill that defined marriage as between a man and a woman.....







    Anyway, wishing the senator a speedy recovery......
