1. They all matter. Call me when the lunatics are stifled and sensible, reasonable discourse can be brought back to center stage.
2. The Mayor of New York City is the true hero here. He's done a remarkable job keeping the city from falling over the precipice -despite thirty extremists calling for dead cops on Youtube and despite, as Raginghorse Blog intelligently notes, some members of the PD today "chose to politicize murder and to do so at what is meant to be a sacred ritual". Despite all of this, the mayor is holding it together. Great job.
