In Memoriam

I know that all of the riders on the Bus join together in extending our deepest sympathies to the students and families of Virginia Tech.

The horrors that occurred in Blacksburg Monday have been felt around the world. Both of my sons are engineering students at VCU and have friends in the engineering program at Tech. We all join in mourning the terrible events that took place Monday.

Glad your kids and their VT friends are okay.

But, my God, what a heart-wrenching event for not only the victims' families, but for all their friends, neighbors, workmates, casual acquaintaces, and even us strangrers.

The grief and impact is, as Ed said, world wide. There were a lot of extra hugs of loved ones in the aftermath.

Let's try to remember to show that extra affection, without needing a tragedy , like this one, to trigger it.

All I can do is echo your sentiments and give thanks that your own loved ones were not affected.

Aftermath: Honestly, I am more bored than sad at the latest scholastic mass murder. Such events seem to occur as regularly as a skip on an old record.

So far as solutions go I am with the crowd that encourages everybody to carry a gun (or two) to defend themselves against such attacks. The police and their state paymasters are surely incapable of defending us and as such have no business regulating our ability to defend ourselves and those we choose to defend.

I read 100 people were murdered in the first three months of this year in Philadelphia. That is one screwed up society.

We do not have as many such attacks in Canada but we are catching up to gunner America and there is no doubt more such attacks will occur here.

For now it is eat or be eaten, beat or be beaten, as Iggy Pop once said.
