A week after the slaughter of 49 people in The Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, there is still much we don’t know. Topping the list is Omar Mateen’s motivation for his mass killing. The long-troubled 29 year old American son of Afghan immigrants hardly fits the mold of so-called “radicalization.” Mateen’s lack of religious commitment and his virulent (and possibly self-loathing) anti-gay fury don’t neatly square with his pledge to the Islamic State at the very end of his life. Just what really happened in the dark nexus where religious zealotry, homophobia, mental illness and America’s gun pathology converge remains a mystery.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
