The shooting today at Virginia Tech is dreadful news. I have fond memories of the time I spent at Tech and of the fine folks there. Blacksburg is (was?) one of the most idyllic college towns in the nation. .
I want to extend my condolences to the families and friends of the people shot today.
I just finished speaking to someone in that area who has been following the local news and breaking story all day. I don’t know how much coverage it has received on the national news yet, but it sounds like the response by the university and the local police to the first round of shootings raises some grave questions.
