What a Waste


How terribly sad and completely avoidable.

[Update: We've seen the gunman (maybe gunboy is more appropriate?) but there is still very little to go on. I will go out on a limb and suggest that part of his rampage stems from anger or frustration over a girl. I could be wrong but that's my hunch here.

Update #2: Va. Tech Gunman Writings Raised Concerns
The gunman in the Virginia Tech massacre was a sullen loner who alarmed professors and classmates with his twisted, blood-drenched creative writing and left a rambling note in his dorm room raging against women and rich kids.

The Chicago Tribune reported on its Web site that the note railed against "rich kids,""debauchery" and "deceitful charlatans" on campus. ABC, citing law enforcement sources, said that the note, several pages long, explains Cho's actions and says, "You caused me to do this."
The article later points out that he went to Westfield High School in Chantilly, Va and that two of the women he killed went there as well. And all of the warning signs were there, he'd even been referred for counseling because of his nightmarish stories in creative writing.]
