When I said it "too American" a couple of days ago I didn't mean a shooting at the event. Good that no one was killed but so sad to have such a happy event marred by such a disgusting incident.

So For the People (interesting cases, good cast) gets canned but Station 19 (poor soap opera) gets another round? No accounting for taste.
