Cold Standard

Peggy Noonan wrote in the Journal today about the Virginia Tech case:

The literally white-bearded head of the campus counseling center was on Paula Zahn Wednesday night suggesting the utter incompetence of officials to stop a man who had stalked two women, set a fire in his room, written morbid and violent plays and poems, been expelled from one class, and been declared by a judge to be "mentally ill" was due to the lack of a government "safety net." In a news conference, he decried inadequate "funding for mental health services in the United States." Way to take responsibility. Way to show the kids how to dodge.
I thought the whole piece was packed with insight.

Noonan thinks the people in charge of the school
Come off like learned fools.
