Senator Boxer Cancels Atwater Office Hours

In the wake of the Arizona assassination attempt on a member of Congress which resulted in the death of six people, Senator Barbara Boxer has postponed her public event that was to take place in Atwater. Since Boxer won re-election last November in spite of a Sarah Palin backed Tea Party candidate running against her just like Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who was shot in the head Saturday. Can you blame her?

It’s unfortunate. For civic nerds these events were our mini Comic Cons.
