This is one of our ongoing, loosely structured community conversations about daily news with thousands of replies. There is no need to read the entire archive for context. If you are new you can skip to the end and join in the discussion of current events as they happen. However, it is always a good idea to spend at least a few minutes reading first to get a feel for the community and the topic before posting.

The latest is a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, at least 5 wounded, and I saw one report of at least 11. I went there last year. Happy I passed this year.
