Have we become numb to these tragedies?

Eleven people died in a mass shooting in Monterey Park, Calif. Seven more people were gunned down two days later up the coast in Half Moon Bay, Calif.

Seventeen people are dead in the span of hours in two mass shootings. Yet … the media aren’t covering this latest spate of violence the way it usually covers such events.

What in the world does one make of the national media’s seeming lack of intense interest in this tragic series?

Have we become numb to it all? Is there no longer a compelling interest in the nation?

I have no answers to any of this. I merely am wondering out loud about why these two compelling news stories have been pushed aside and away from the top of our collective minds.

Weird, man. Very weird.
