• This month’s award for poor taste goes to the Pima County (Arizona) Republican Party, which is planning to raffle off a gun like the one used to shoot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Our dim view of this has nothing to do with second amendment rights, but rather spotlights an exercise in poor judgment, given the tragedy that occurred in Rep. Giffords’ district in January, in which a gunman killed six people and wounded 13 others. • We note with sadness the death of Carroll Furman, a World War II veteran who practiced law in Camden for many years. Furman was a one-of-a-kind guy, a collector of many things who was still parachuting out of airplanes at an age when many people were rocking away in retirement.
