Dealing with the Newtown, CT school shooting

I'm wondering how many parents discussed the Newtown, CT school shooting with their children this weekend and how many chose not to. It's a tricky subject, and I know parents on both sides. Some feel the kids need to know; others want to shelter them.

Personally, I was not too motivated to discuss the incident with my kids. What do you say? Will they be overcome with fear? But when I saw my 8-year-old reading the Wall Street Journal for the first time ever because she noticed the headline, I knew there would be no sheltering.
