Sometimes I feel like I’m trapped in the Twilight Zone where I’m surrounded by crazy people, but only I know it.

At this point there are so many mass shootings that I could just cut and paste my complaints every couple of weeks.

I don’t think anyone is reading this column anyway. I’ve never received any feedback beyond “change your picture.”

I hate to be so cynical, but when a school…
