Booknblues | 5500 comments Wow! Sadness abounds.

Las Vegas!

Tom Petty!

Puerto Rico!

Susie | 4488 comments Isn't it awful? I couldn't go to sleep last night after watching the late news here in Australia. The scenes from Las Vegas were just horrific. I hope everyone based in the US didn't have any friends or family present.


message 3: by Booknblues (new)

Booknblues | 5500 comments My nephew and his wife lived in Las Vegas until just recently. I am hoping that all their friends and family are safe.

I'm reading that the initial reports of Tom Petty's death haven't been confirmed so I'm hoping that I will hear something different.

I've seen him in concert twice and have many great memories intertwined with his music.

message 5: by Jgrace (new)

Jgrace | 2756 comments A woman I worked with has a niece who was 'grazed' in the attack. I feel her relief that the girl wasn't hurt seriously, but I think the injury wil be more than just physical.

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 5639 comments Latest news feed says that Petty is "clinging to life" .... he's on life support at a hospital.

Terrible news re Las Vegas. 42 weapons! Seriously, WHO needs 42 weapons?! Nobody, that's who. And nobody needs even one automatic assault weapon.


message 9: by Booknblues (new)

Booknblues | 5500 comments Good bye, Tom! I'm going to miss you.

I think he passed away this morning


message 12: by Anita (new)

Anita Pomerantz | 6276 comments It seems as though Tom Petty is truly deceased. So, so sad. I saw him in concert as an adult, and what a tremendous rocker he was.

Agree with you BnB - - just sad stories everywhere.

I have family in Las Vegas. Fortunately, they weren't injured, but they have friends that were injured and killed. It's really hard for them.
