Another week, another shooting spree in a public place. Faced with an opportunity to gloat about how this never would have happened if only the victims had been heavily armed themselves, somewhere Wayne LaPierre is smiling. Then again, so is Marc Lepine.

    National Weather Service.

    That's all.

    You'd do the same.

    What the hell is wrong with Engineering schools? That's at least two now.

    I work in an Engineering school. I'm thinking about getting hazard insurance.

    I'm impressed that people are already politicizing the issue before the damn bodies are even cold. Jack Thompson, anti-video game activist, was on Fox News today blaming the shooting on video games, with absolutely no evidence whatsoever.

    Also, on CNN, Gregg MCCrary warns that now is the time to be worried about more events like this happening, because people can get put "over the edge" by events like these. Which is in no way an alarmist attempt to get people to hide in their homes, under their covers, with CNN on.

    Surprisingly, nobody asked the only question that needed asking: "Without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?"

    There's politicization from every side of every facet possible. It was because we have too many violent video games/movies/TV shows/rock bands, it was because we have too many guns, it was because we don't have enough guns, etc, etc. Really, I just hate everyone.

    according to ESPN, we're all missing the point. The true blessing here is that nobody from the respective football & basketball programs was hurt in the spree.

    No lie. They said that in so many words on the 5pm SportsCenter the day of the shooting…as though this were a sports story of ANY consequence for them to be covering in the first place…
