On tragedy

Okay, so I had some snark ready to go for today, but in light of recent events, I think it can keep until tomorrow.

At Virginia Tech today, a gunman killed 21 people and injured 28 before he himself was killed, although as yet the police don't know or can't say how he died. The shootings took place in a residence hall and the engineering building.

A good number of family members and friends are Virginia Tech alums, and some are actually there and have reason to spend time in the engineering building (although I'm assured that all are okay). I'm sure this is hard on all of them, and my prayers go out to the families of the victims, to those who weren't hit but are shaken up nonetheless, and for the immortal soul of the gunman.
