Yes, my heart feels too much pain.

Dear Katy

I’ve had a letter published in today’s Sunday Times if anyone’s interested. I’ll comment on the American atrocity later.

Best wishes from Simon

Dear Katy

In today’s Sunday Times, Christina Lamb writes:

‘For Republicans the right to bear arms is seen as a fundamental right and candidates frequently boast of their shooting prowess. During his bid for the presidency in 2008, Mitt Romney talked of shooting “small varmints”; his deputy this year, Paul Ryan, is a committed hunter.’

This tragedy is beyond appalling but with so many Americans wedded to their firearms I seriously doubt whether there will be any substantive changes. If Obama introduced gun control he would probably be assassinated and he knows it.

Best wishes from Simon
