A mass shooting at a Colorado grocery store
Authorities in Boulder said a gunman opened fire on a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday afternoon, killing at least 10 people, including a police officer. The suspect, who was wounded during the shooting, is in custody. Here is the latest.
When officers secure the building, more than a dozen people were taken out of the supermarket, the King Soopers in a residential area two miles south of the University of Colorado campus. The grocery store usually attracts a mix of families and college students.
“This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County,” said Michael Dougherty, Boulder County attorney.
The implications: Colorado has been the scene of a number of fatal shootings in recent years. This was often followed by a partisan split, with Republicans generally resisting new calls for tighter gun laws, while Democrats said these moments underscored the need for new and stricter gun laws.

Biden’s $ 3 Trillion Spending Plan
President Biden’s economic team plans to spend the same amount 3 trillion dollars to revitalize the US economy.
Although administration officials warn that the details of the spending programs are still in flux, the mega infrastructure plan will include nearly $ 1 trillion to build roads, bridges, railways, ports, and electric vehicle charging stations, along with Improvements to the electrical grid.
The second package will include a free community college, public kindergarten, a paid national vacation program and tax credits to reduce childcare costs, according to people familiar with the plans and documents obtained by The New York Times.
But whether the Democrats can push the programs through Congress, given their narrow majorities in both houses, depends in part on how the bills are funded. Officials have discussed offsetting some or all of infrastructure spending through a corporate tax increase, a move that will not be popular with Republicans.

Shock and epidemic
With serious illness and suffering, Covid-19 has caused psychological trauma to the United States. Dr. Diane Meyer, Director of the New York Palliative Care Center, discussed What is needed to heal With our Talk columnist. This is an excerpt.
Has the epidemic affected our collective attitude towards grief?
There are many shadow plagues. The first is the shock to the entire health profession over the past year. The other trauma is the nearly 10 people who have died from Covid who are grieving. That’s over five million people. This is a pandemic that will be with us long after we get the virus under control.
Our current president has worked hard to start addressing this through ritual ceremonies to remember and honor the dead, and he has spoken a lot about his life. Especially Losses, to normalize the conversation about losses and how to be with you every day. this is important. We need other people to do that, too.
Are there aspects of the human experience of disease or chronic pain that used to be mysterious to you and that you understand now?
My view of trauma has a greater scope than it used to be – both at the species level and on the tribal level. As I read the news, I don’t know if we will develop our way out of this. The need to hate and kill another is a crucial human characteristic, and it teaches many aspects of our society.
