OK Magazine: The Latest News on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ Condition

January 14, 2011- Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been in recovery since she was shot in the head on Saturday by accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner at a Safeway store in Tucson. The good news is that she’s been making huge progress since then, and doctors at University Medical Center remain optimistic about her ongoing recovery.
The New York Times reports that Giffords’ doctors say she can now keep her eyes open for up to 15 minutes at a time, and can move her legs and hands. She is still using a tube to help her breathe, as a precautionary measure, although she is able to breathe on her own.

While doctors call her progress “a major leap forward,” Giffords’ condition remains critical.

CBS News: Giffords' Husband Opens Up About Wife's Progress

Januray 14, 2011- In his first interview since Saturday's shooting in Tucson, Arizona, Mark Kelly, the husband of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, opened up on Thursday about his wife's recent medical progress. He said Giffords' breathing tube could be removed as early as Friday.

Kelly, who spoke with CNN's Sanjay Gupta, said Giffords continued to make significant medical progress - though her future remains uncertain.

"I do think about her neurological function, and it is just too early to tell what that will be," Kelly told CNN.

Giffords was shot in the head in the Tucson, Arizona shootings that killed 6 and injured 14. She remains in critical condition, though doctors have expressed optimism about her progress.

Jared Loughner's Videos

Understanding that people are interested in seeing these, we have decided to post them. Unfortunately, linking to his videos would most likely be playing into his hands. Rather than reward unbalanced criminality by driving up Jared Loughner's view count, the videos posted here are re-posts from a third party's YouTube channel.

No Ordinary Cross Hairs

-by Karen Dolan

Christina Taylor Green might well have made the world a better place someday. According to reports, Christina had just been elected to her elementary school's Student Council. Her neighbor brought her along to Rep. Gifford's community event in the corner Safeway parking lot. He thought it would be of interest to this young, budding public servant.

Nine years old, a ballerina, a ball-player, a student councilmember and a beloved daughter, Christina Taylor Green was felled by a would-be assasin's bullet.

Fox News: Trawling for Assassins

Obama vs Fox

-By Frank Schaeffer

October 21, 2009- President Obama is getting criticism for going after Fox News. I fault the White House too: for not going far enough. The real issue is not Fox's right wing "bias." The real issue is that FOX News seems to be trawling for assassins. Here's the letter White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs should write. Or maybe it should come from the head of United States Secret Service.

Dear Rupert Murdoch, since you are responsible for what is on Fox News I have a question for you: Do you ever wonder how you'll be remembered by Americans and the world (not to mention your children) if someone takes a shot at President Obama, and when asked why they did it, quotes the misinformation spouted by Fox News as their "reason?"
