This final note on the way out today. No Marketplace angle, really, just a number, in light of the shooting at Umpqua Community College up in Oregon this afternoon.

According to the website shootingtracker.com (which uses a different measure than the FBI does in its tally), there have been 294 mass shootings in this country so far this year.

That works out to more than one a day, every single day of the year.
