"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


signs of the times

Here is how our world has changed: less than six hours after the tragic shootings at Virginia Tech, there is already a Wikipedia entry on the incident. There are also several Facebook groups that have been started in memory of those who lost their lives, even though the names of the dead of course haven't yet been released.

The death toll is up to at least 32. And I expect to have a very interesting discussion about the second amendment with my students tonight. It's the week for discussing civil liberties.
