Manchester -a personal statement.

The recent event in Manchester resulting in the death of 22 people and the injury of some 50+ more, some of whom were children, is, of course, not only sad; but also sickening.

Sickening not just because of what occurred, but sickening as a result of the platitudes offered by those who bear the responsibility for having created the conditions which allowed it happened.
