Say A Prayer for the Fallen Hokies
The Virginia Tech massacre is no doubt the story of the year so far in 2007. Over the next days and weeks there will be a media feast as journalists seek answers, speculate, and grieve with the community that has probably been changed forever during one horrific act.
So far we have learned little about the shooter, or victims. I'm not here to report the facts. There are plenty of great journalists in Blacksburg asking questions.
This however seems to be a homeland security issue. Aren't the police as well as university officials trained to deal with threats on campus? This is certainly an act of terrorism, and it looks like someone dropped the ball.
Looks like the bloggers are responding. Check Deez.
