Godspeed to the people of Charleston, South Carolina …

… in light of the spree killing tonight at Emanuel A.M.E. Church.  I am only just reading reports now — the victim count is unclear; the gunman is still at large.

Charleston’s people are absolutely wonderful.  I went there a couple of times during my college days, and I do remember Calhoun Street, where the church is located.  I was amazed at how genteel and goodnatured the city’s residents were.
