Day of silence


This just sucks.

At least 33 people are dead in what may be the biggest mass shooting in modern American history.

I'm done blogging for the day. I'll leave you with one thought: an event like this happens two or three times a day in Iraq, which has less than a tenth of our population. Give thanks you live here, even if we have to deal with the occasional armed nutjob.

My thoughts and best wishes are with the students, the victims and their families.

At this point, the police are focusing on a 24-year old Chinese man who came here on a student visa 1 year ago. And they believe he may have tested the campus security with the bomb threats last weeks. If so, then he's not even an American....which blows your entire theory. Also, I'm sure they are investigating whether he had any terrorist ties.
