Paul, to reiterate your point, you MUST see the CNN interview with Stephen Barton.  After being shot in the neck, witnessing the horror, being rushed to the hospital, and being in surgery for over one hour, he was interviewed by CNN in his hospital bed while on oxygen with a huge bandage across his neck.  His response to the very first question: "My memory is only of the muzzle, of the flash. ... I didn't even see a figure behind the gun,"  He goes on to give this account, "It was cold and calculated, definitely. It seemed very methodical -- just the rate at which he was firing and how he wasn't really moving position," said Barton. "He was just unloading into the crowd. It seemed to me to be very purposeful and methodical."  Stephen showed an amazing amount of courage, and my comment is in no way criticizing his response.  I am just absolutey amazed that he can articulate his experience in such a way after what he just experience less than 24 hours ago...
