Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” begins with the essentials of the Sunday church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that left 26 dead and a score wounded.

This only 35 days after a high-rise massacre at a Las Vegas concert. It’s hard to believe, but the discussion of Confederate symbolism that followed was something of a relief.
