The latest local reports say 12 people died and at least 54 were injured when a lone gunman opened fire in a crowded Aurora, Colorado, theater last night. The sellout crowd was attending the premier of the third Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”
This was the news that greeted me when I got up this morning and I was as shocked as everyone else here in Denver and across the nation, moreso because my son and a group of friends had gone to the showing, a triple feature of all the Batman movies.

My thoughts today are with the victims and their families, loved ones, and friends.
