Blacksburg and Baghdad

As someone who has worked or gone to school on a college campus for a couple of decades now, my heart goes out to all those involved in the shootings today at Virginia Tech.

But, then there's politics, and along with Larry Johnson I can't help but watch all the headlines and news shows get dominated by this terrible story and think of Laura Bush saying to Larry King: "But, of course, what we see on television is the one bombing a day that discourages everybody."

So, don't be discouraged, everybody. It was just one extended shooting. Why aren't we being shown the rest of the country's campuses, violence free?

Oh, and what was President Bush's response? "'The president believes that there is a right for people to bear arms, but that all laws must be followed,'" spokeswoman Dana Perino said."

Yep, guns don't kill people, the media who cover people getting killed kill people. After all, if you never show those coffins, it's like the deaths never happened.

Ahh! BUSH makes my blood roil! In my personal encyclopaedia, there would be an entry next to George W. saying "the worst president ever (so far circa 2007) to run the USS A aground, and to have a medication designed specifically to help citizens of the world cope with an involuntary rise of blood pressure upon seeing his face, reading his name, or any level of interaction with this blaspheme. Life is sad and illogical at times (that would not be in the encyclopedia)
