Ken Ulman - Hero of The Mall in Columbia Shootings

I took my daughter to the Mall in Columbia last week so that she could shop for shoes for a dance.  Yes, I'm that dad.  Aren't I cool?

As you'll recall, the Mall in Columbia was where a shooting took place on January 25th, 2014.  We passed the store of the shooting, Zumiez, which has since closed.  There is an eerie aura being there.  Two people died at the hands of a lunatic there.  There was also this sad tribute to the victims written on the walls.  Many people gathered around the walls to read what others had written.  It was a silent and somber gathering.  Some just read.  Others wrote.  And a few placed flowers at the base.

However, I was a bit irritated by the words the mall had written.  The heroes are certainly the police, fire and rescue members.  They ran into the mall expecting to find a shooter and come face-to-face with him despite the dangers.  But Howard County Executive Ken Ulman?  He showed up and did a press conference.  He sat there on camera and said, "Uhm" 200 times while rocking back and forth on his feat.  How is he a hero?  Thank God for Ken Ulman!  If it weren't for him, he wouldn't have been in a press conference!!!  Ken Ulman for Lieutenant Governor, right?  Ken Ulman needs to be introduced to reality first.
