Like the rest of the world, Rock Turtleneck has been deeply saddened and affected by the horrible events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT last month. Newtown is only a half-hour or so from the RT home base, and without getting into details, we have several friends who were directly affected by the shooting.

This morning, the kids of Sandy Hook sang "Over the Rainbow" on Good Morning America, and even if you have the iciest of ice water running through your veins, this should thaw it.
