Sigh

Not much to say today in light of the events at Virginia Tech.

Condolences to those who have lost loved ones; best wishes for recovery to those injured.

Tired of the news doing a “greatest hits” of school-shooting massacres, as if this dead gunman should be handed a shiny trophy for his marksmanship.

Snark to return soon.

    No shit. There’s sort of a macabre emphasis on the fact that this is the worst school shooting ever, with the reporter attempting to conceal the glee of covering the story.

    You really can’t compare this to long-range shooting from the tower in Austin. Point-blank executions by a Korean punk really don’t deserve to be compared to a Texas shooter.

    Snark to return soon.

    I’m trying to fill in while you are absent.

    During a low point in my decorum, I used to rate the mass murders on their kill ratio, how many shot to how many dead; and I was going to go for how many rounds used to how many killed, but it was hard to find out the number of rounds used; and then I got sane again and quit keeping those stats.
