A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.

Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

    And here I thought that if I came right out and said "sarcasm" it would be understood. I guess it really is impossible to be sarcastic on the internet.

    If there isn't at least one reference or primary source, it's not +1 Informative. Maybe the underused +1 Interesting?

    Keep Poe's Law [] in mind. If straightforward rational discussion is your goal, clarity should take priority over wit.

    I say this sadly as a fellow fond of wit, or at least my best attempts at it.
