One Good Observation, One Good Idea

The good observation is from Orin Kerr:

… the problem with responding to news of tragedy with policy ideas right away is that we tend not to realize in such situations how often our "proposals" are really expressions of psychological need. It's human nature to respond to tragedy by fitting it into our preexisting worldviews; we instinctively restore order by construing the tragic event as a confirmation of our sense of the world rather than a threat to it.
So you won't see any of that here.

The good idea is from Misha at the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler:

Were it in my power, I'd immediately award Professor Librescu the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian decoration for valor that we have.
