so "Going Campus" is the new "Going Postal?"

and if we let them take over healthcare, we can logically look forward to "Going Medical."

Oh no! This happening in one of my hometowns! That college was not there when I was. I guess the town has grown a lot since 1949. Prayers for the victims’ families.

Local news reporting 3 dead. Shooter in Custody.

1 local reporter said the shooter was a professor who was denied tenure. Shot several co-workers. That is not confirmed right now.

Word is that all the victims are faculty members.

What a tragedy - prayers for the victims.

If it’s true that the shooter was denied tenure - it looks like the shooter just confirmed the college’s original assessment...

Not surprised if this is result of tenure denial. Those are appointments that are held and dispensed in a very political way. My daughter went through that and won tenure, but now she is in the process of getting full professorship. She has to be approved by every little fifedom from dept. head to chancillor and ultimately President of the Alumni Board. She has made it past the dean. But she has been fatalistic from the outset. She won’t come unglued if it doesn’t happen.

It's odd, there is no such thing as tenure in the private sector...

Thank you. As I said, she does not have her heart set on it. She does pretty well as a tenured professor. I think she will make it because I would imagine that if the dean approved her, then the rest will follow his recommendation. She has been at App. State Univ. for a long time and does a fantastic job at what she does.

I am West of Huntsville on 72 across the MS/TN/AL stateline. My prayers for the families of those lost. I go there to the functions at the Merrimac Center. Usually the ones that go ape like that are liberals.

I’ve eyewitnessed a school administrator go off on parents, completely losing control of herself (the parents were calm), so a faculty member going off the deep end and taking it up a notch by shooting their coworkers is not a surprise to me.

I live in HSV and had the tv on another channel. One of the cable news stations had it happening at Bama. Turned it to a local station and it was here. Talked to my daughter who has some employees with kids going to UAH and all of them are fine. She said she was told that the people were on staff but did not know if that were all of the ones who died. She also said a couple was in custody. This info comes from her contacts at UAH and we know that info could be rumors. Prayers going up for everyone involved. She said that Center is where she has lots of meetings.
