Where school shootings occur at semi-regular intervals. One thing that struck me watching interviews of students that night that it happened was how calmly they described what had happened, kicking over desks to take cover, climbing out of windows (although maybe only the calm ones got on TV). We live in a world where this sort of thing happens enough that FBI has profiles for the sort of student who might do this type of thing. Where teachers have to wonder if a disturbed student is likely to go on a killing spree.
We live in a crazy world.
Where Rush Limbaugh is the voice of reason.
It is a mad world, so lets do better for our art form than a flaky Gears Of War commercial. ;)
I’m hoping to get a chance to talk to some of the English teacthers and Cho and I both shared. Research…
Don’t even get me started on Gears of War. :)
But I hope you did get in touch with your friend that was going to early classes(that you mentioned on your blog).
He’s fine, thanks for asking. I’m heading down there later this week.
