Prayers for the victim’s family. Prayers also for those told to “sit still there, duck.”

What’s with the Graduate Students at VT? is the real question.

If you have read any of Cho’s emails, you may or may not be shocked to discover that they are hiring famous, but incompetent professors who make a mockery out of higher education by forcing kids to sit the class sessions filled with idle chatter and bashing of anything not PC.

Cho was the murderer in the big shootout.

The Collegiate Times is down just now, but I will get a link to those emails when it returns.

Thanks. I just got off the phone with my son. He’s already off campus tonight at the house he rents near the elementary school right off campus. He’d heard someone had been “murdered tonight”. This again, is so bizarre. I’m sure everyone is at a loss because Blacksburg and Virginia Tech are really so idyllic in so many ways.

Nothing yet on CNN, they are still stuck in full bore linear but smooching of O-Vomit’s inauguration.

Does anyone mind if I turn on the news?

I’m talking on AIM with a friend down there. She doesn’t know what’s going on other than through the two e-mails sent out to all students. However, she said that she’ll find out eventually, since she has class in the building in question later this week.

Still...Virginia Tech? Again? Shucks.

I kind of doubt a stabbing on a campus is National News, but then again we don’t know the extent of it. They are starting to refer to “the victim”, indicating it is one person.

Stalinist democrats are evidently running the place, so the students will continue to be cannon fodder when a psychopath goes onto the campus with murderous intentions.

If the victims were shot to death, then some of the blood is on the hands of the VT leadership.

Why aren't their students allowed to have a concealed weapon if they are licensed/registered to do so?

Wow, Virginia Tech again.

Just now watching Virginia Tech leading #1 Wake Forest (68-62, 4:30 left) — at Wake (Winston-Salem, NC), and I’ll bet 99% of those on VT’s campus are glued to the tube — or were, before this news.

I hear you.

The victim was stabbed to death, and the police have someone in custody.

Check their homepage for more info, but for now it's just a short pop-up announcement.

“Resume normal activities” (avoid crime scene).

I know so many of the kids. I wonder how long it will be before the name of the victim is released?

Michael Smith in the English Department is a PC loon.

Worst ever.

Literature in his class consists of a book with a talking ape and some utopian novel where the Northwest becomes their own nation and lives wonderfully innocent lives of pure collectivist joy.

Barf.

They were. The Sports Bars are absolutely packed, and the bars are within a couple blocks of the murder scene, so the kids were quite nervous for a bit there.

Thanks for that.

I can remember when my niece was at Samford when a security guard caused a big mess and made up a story that a perp was on campus. Scared the hell out of all of us.

OMG prayers for the victim and the family. VT again!? This is an unbelievably tragic situation for everyone there to be enduring this fright another time. It would be tragic anywhere, of course, but many students there have already been frightened once and some just overcoming it. This is getting to be one horrible world anymore.

It was at Donaldson Brown. I was going to be at the library next door but I had to stay with my daughter.

It could be an international thing.

It is starting to look like it happened at Au Bon Pain in the building. ABP has grad and undergrad foot traffic.

See my tagline---we MUST eliminate gun free zones, aka killing fields. We must let the qualified students arm themselves--on campus.

Even though this latest guy used a knife--remember, never bring a knife to a gun fight!

Dang it. And of course here the kids can’t have a handgun under 21 much less carry on a campus. I can only carry to pick her up or visit in car. In a red state no less.
