George Tiller, who specialized in abortions, was shot to death in Wichita today inside a church. If you can, might we suggest donating to Planned Parenthood in his name. Did we mention he was shot in a church?
We’re speechless, even knowing the history of Operation Rescue in Wichita since we’re from Kansas. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends and anyone that witnessed the shooting today. We’re not writing more because we’re just sick and sad about the country we live in and the world in general.
RIP, Mr. Tiller.
UPDATE: Here’s some info on the suspect, Scott Roeder, from Daily Kos:

Another in Hiram’s series “Everybody Knows You’re Not from Here” at circle into square: an interview with Portland, OR, rockers Wow & Flutter.
Part 1 of an interview with Ian from Musicophilia is up on the circle into square site.
Matthew Perpetua at Fluxblog wrote a nice bit about the song “Plastic Deer” from our EP, “An Uncloudy Day”.
We’re putting out an EP through our site. It’s called “An Uncloudy Day” and you can either listen to/download the songs or download a zip/rar file from this page:

We’d missed this (probably because of our lack of cable tv), but it’s up on youtube. VH1 ran a documentary about the Langley School Music Project and how it became a release on Bar None:
And if you don’t know about Hans Fenger or the Langley School album, you can read about it here.
We really love this album. Our song “For Sheila Behman” was written with the girl (now woman) who sang “Desperado” on the album in mind.
