Also, another problem is that people who write letters to the editor in my hometown newspaper are idiots. Like you know, there's very little mention of structural issues such as poverty and the drug war. It's all "if only folks prayed more" or "if only parents were better". Now, some individual parents are terrible,but us outsiders can't really improve their parenting skills. All we can do is make the environment so that the effect of the bad parenting is reduced. Prayer vigils are all well and good(ok, I think they are useless pandering to the sort of soft headed idiots who think every single person who has Jesus on their lips has the real Jesus on their minds) but yea, we need a Magic Johnson here.
