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


still sad

More details on the VT shooting:
  • There is at least one report that the shooter took his own life.
  • Student reporters at Virginia Tech report that some accounts report that the shooter was trying to find his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend. There are lots of other details here. Planet Blacksburg definitely has the most up-to-date information.

I hope this isn't made into a race issue. It is just tragic.

I don't think it will be. There is going to be considerable question as to why authorities didn't lock down the campus after the first shooting. They apparently think both shootings were carried out by one person. If that's the case, there may have been students in class who wouldn't have otherwise been shot. How tragic.
