"Tony Awards Will Be Dedicated to the Victims of the Orlando Nightclub Attack; Hamilton to Remove Muskets From Performance"

I don't expect a single soul to mention "jihad"  or "Islam" or "Allahu Akbar!" And if anyone during the musket-free broadcast says something along the lines of "we can defeat hate with love," I'm going to puke.

Update: ACLU lawyers blame ‘Christian right,’ GOP for Orlando jihad massacre

Meanwhile, over at the Ceeb's Sunday call-in show, Cross Country Checkup, clueless Canadians were blaming:
  • the Second Amendment/U.S. "gun culture;
  • violent video games;
  • social media;
  • the gunman's "mental health" (or lack thereof); and
  • the regular media, for "sensationalizing" events such as the nightclub massacre.
Update: Showing that he "gets" it not at all, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda blithers on about love, love, love (instead of jihad, jihad, jihad):
