More mass panic in America. I used to just write these off — but having now been there, and watched people get hurt as they trampled each other feet from me, these stories hurt. End this era.  https://twitter.com/i/events/1160664839301165057 

Our culture is dying. "Once in the festival grounds, many scoped out the crowd for possible threats and noted the fastest way out should anything happen. This is the new world of major festivals and gatherings, or what security experts call soft targets."  https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/At-Outside-Lands-worst-case-scenarios-on-many-14296996.php 

22 days out from El Paso. It feels like a lifetime ago, but the edge and fear is very much still alive. Yet another mass panic, in Milpitas. I'm sure so many aren't reaching national coverage too. I now believe they will only grow more common, that the timeline won't matter.
