PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- Does it just seem like America hasn't had a break since the shootings at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater last year, or have we just been swinging from one tragedy to the next for that long?They've come with very different faces: A multifronted superstorm in Sandy, yet another gunman in Newtown, Conn., outright terrorists in Boston, negligence in Waco, Texas, a Mother's Day shooter in New Orleans and now a rare F-5 tornado in Moore, Okla. When a headline in The Onion sums it up best -- Americans Dredge Up Last Remaining Reserves Of Grief -- it's tempting to just try to run away from it all.
