When I saw ‘Kirkwood’, I immediately thought of East Atlanta where the cost of living’s going up and the chance of living’s going down.

I used to live just a few blocks from this high school and my brother went to high school there. Good thing the reports were so early in the morning, there shouldn’t be any kids there yet.

Breakfast or not, at 6 am the only people at school are janitors and cooks or a team is having an early practice.

When I was a kid we lived on Argone (I think that was the name) street by the tracks. Meachem Park was between us and the High School.

OMG! I live 1/2 mile from Kirkwood High. I've been up since 5:30 and haven't heard any sirens or been aware of any commotion.
O.K. - I just turned on the TV and the local FOX news station says "it" (whatever it was, is all over. They are interviewing a couple of student on their way into the school who say "they are O.K. going into the school and are glad "Kirkwood knows how to handle this sort of thing".

There is a concerted effort by the media and the Democrat party to over publicize every school shooting, in hope there will be copycats. I blame liberals for sensationalizing these cries (among other things).

It turns out to have been a package of lightbulbs falling off a shelf and breaking.

I think it was the last of those 40 watt bulbs committing suicide.

A box of lightbulbs falls, a janitor mistakes it for a gunshot and calls 911, SWAT teams descend on the school, everyone is evacuated to a mile away, the school is swept from top to bottom and the box of lightbulbs is found.

It won’t be long before most students and teachers and parents will all be on sedatives 24-7.

I remember in HIgh School. Way be in the early 70’s I was in the office one morning (not in trouble mind you), when the assistance principal got a phone call and yelled “oh Yeah, go ahead.” He hung up laughed and said “another bomb threat.” YOu could get away with that in those days. What a change since then.

True Laz ... They (the media) have no idea who their enemy is. Yes, they (the media) are that stupid and very well paid to be stupid. It certainly isn’t us coming for them and their families. Too bad the media isn’t so well informed.
