Hey, Wonketariat! Once again we have to start the day with a mass shooting, and we're really sorry that we have to do this (AGAIN). Here's some of the things we may be talking about today when we're not screaming incoherently.
More than 50 people have died, and more than 400 were wounded in a mass shooting at the Mandalay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas after a 64-year-old gunman opened fire on a crowd attending a country music concert. It is now being called the deadliest mass shooting in US history. Presumably most of the following stories won't get covered today.
