Tom’s link to the Salon article about Lanza and the link to the subverted masculine role of James was interesting, and it brings together an interesting point–how much of Obama’s conduct also seems to represent a repressed desire for conspicuous manhood. Its interesting how often serial killers start their careers by killing  a parent, and there was something unseemingly sexual and freudian the way Obama sicced the Navy Seals on the elder, beared Osama. The current obsession with disarmament continues the Freudian parallels,  as if Obama, afraid of his latent violence, seems to want to ban guns before he kills again.  So much in common, in so many ways. Thanks, Tom, for raising the issue of repressed manhood and its catastrophic impacts on society.
