Some jerk with a shotgun and 2 pistols shot up a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University Thursday afternoon. The Trib says he was a former grad student.
He ended by shooting himself. Typical.
They want to make a name,
But they're scared to face the shame.
I'm just waiting, with a vaguely sick stomach, to find out if anyone I knew was touched by this.
Update: 6 victims dead so far.
From the irony department, here's a profile on the murderous jerk:
In a recent posting on an Internet site, he wrote about his interest in getting elected to a national association, saying he was committed to social justice. In a scholarly paper he co-authored two years ago, the man described himself as being interested in social justice, corrections, political violence and peace.
