Jožin z bažin (originally 1977) is a song by Czech musician and comedian Ivan Mládek, and is among his best known songs. He even called it the "National Anthem" of his TV show "Countryshow". The song is a surreal tale of a mysterious man-eating monster living in the swamps (Jožin z bažin, Joey from the swamps). In the song, the monster is eventually defeated with the use of a cropduster.

What happened today in Santa Fe, Texas is yet another tragedy besetting our country. It is important to understand that tragedies such as Santa Fe, Parkland, Sutherland Springs, and many more do not only affect the communities in which they occur. They are tragedies that affect all of us across the country and the world. While we send our thoughts and prayers to those who have lost loved ones, friends, and students, we must also look at ourselves, what causes tragedies such as these, and how to prevent them in the future.
