As I flipped through the channels I caught a minute or two of Bill O'Reilly on Fox News interviewing Michell Malkin. The fat mick was saying that Virginia Tech was negligent because they didn't shut down the university after the first shootings were reported. Fuck him. In hindsight maybe they should have frisked every person who tried to enter the campus today or maybe the Chinese shouldn't have invented gun powder. He reminded me, in case I had forgotten - which I hadn't, why I hate him. Because he's the sort of prick that shows up at a tragedy to second guess and finger point before the facts are known and the spilled blood is mopped up.
Beware my friends, beware those will try to make political hay out of this. Some will say that gun control could have prevented it. Others will say the campus being a gun free zone invited attack. The truth is that nothing can stop someone from hurting others if he or she is prepared to do so. For now let's tend to the dead and the injured and leave the blame game for another day.
