  • FOR FRANCE: The Omni Hotel in Dallas was among many structures lit to show solidarity with France in yesterday's attacks. The Arkansas River bridge in Little Rock was similarly illuminated last night.

The latest in the New York Times
says 127 are dead and 300 are hospitalized, 80 in critical condition, after the attacks across Paris. The  gunmen are dead. ISIS has claimed responsibility.

We are all Parisians today. And tomorrow.

It is easy to declare, as many have, that those responsible should be wiped off the face of the earth. But the cold reality is that there is no military mighty enough to completely eliminate the threat of asymmetric attacks, in which so few can deliver so much terror and death.

The politicking is well underway. Tonight's Democratic debate will get greater attention than it would have previously.  My favorite statement so far is from the Huckster, whose prescription includes barring admission to the U.S. of people from countries with a strong presence of ISIS or Al Qaeda. Would France count?
