Virginia Tech Massacre Is Our Gut-Check


Hound: you, Cole, Johnson and Olbermann last night, are so absolutely right on the money. And just before I read your post, I saw this breaking news story on CNN.com:

"Bombings in Baghdad kill 127 people, including 82 in an attack at a market, the Iraqi Interior Ministry says."

In other words, just another day in the deathpit known as Iraq.

Amen!! Thank you for this.

Brave Sir Robib

What we call the worst shooting ever in our history, (it wasn't - see here ), Iraq calls Monday.

I kinda hit on that in yesterday's post too.


Good point, Brave Sir! If only our national press corps concerned itself with being historically accurate (let alone remembering what happened two months ago):

"There, on the snowy banks of Wounded Knee Creek (Cankpe Opi Wakpala), nearly 300 Lakota men, women, and children -- old and young -- were massacred in a highly charged, violent encounter with U.S. soldiers."
(From "The Wounded Knee Massacre" by Lori Liggett, BGSU, Summer 1998)

As bad as Monday was, it pales in comparison to this day for Native Americans.

And, yes, imagining one's own children having to maneuver around corpses on their way to school is simply unfathomable.
