How the People See Current Events

Crossing the airwaves today:

BLACKSBURG, Va. — A gunman massacred 32 people at Virginia Tech in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history Monday, cutting down his victims in two attacks two hours apart before the university could grasp what was happening and warn students.

The bloodbath ended with the gunman committing suicide, bringing the death toll to 33 and stamping the campus in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains with unspeakable tragedy, perhaps forever.

And the public reaction:

“Its about time that someone had some go-go…some guts. These high school shootings? Single digits. I’m talkin’ double…yeah, that’s how you do it.”

-Josh, 25

“What hasn’t happened yet is someone going to one of these large seventies-style apartment buildings and going unit to unit and pushing them out of the windows. Just one by one. When the cops come, just blow your head off. But the goal is to see how far you get.”

-Bill, 31

“Did you see the video of Karl Rove rapping? Just watching those disgusting rich white men mimic hip hop made me wonder what this country is coming to.”

-Michael, 22
