Breaking news: some guy murdered 32 people.

I actually can't tell you how many drafts I went through before submitting this one.

I tried lecturing, moralizing, dramatizing, rationalizing, analyzing, soul-searching, getting angry, getting depressed, getting preachy, and ignoring it. None of these led me to an answer.

Human behavior continues to baffle me.

That was the main theme of what I had written. When something baffles you, I suppose the best thing to do is to admit that you are baffled and go on about your business. In a few hours I will be prepared to be baffled again.
