when the news broke yesterday I was thinking of you Kit, wondering what you would feel like now.. too sad.
And that one was likely not the last either..
Thanks.

It would appear that this was between two men who had a beef and the other innocents were at the wrong place at the wrong time. No disrespect to the victims or their families. This happens in Toronto but it is usually gang related. More so now it is knives since the availability of guns has been decreased. It still happens though.

I think Angelika that Texas needs real leadership for a change. Those currently in office have a "knee jerk" response to any issue. Go far right to make some bizarre statement. Perry said that guns on campus would prevent all campus shootings, a fool would know that is not true.

You definitely DO, Kit-get rid of that jerk Perry and his bizarre spoutings. And most certainly next times any shooting happens there will ALWAYS be innocents at the wrong place at the wrong time!

I'm hoping he will nurture his aspirations for the presidency and not do another "end round" on the Texas constitution to run again. Though nothing scurrilous or deceitful done by that man is a surprise. He has about the same chance of becoming president as an ice cube in hell.

There are always innocents and the reality is in a panic situation we have about one tenth of a second to respond. How many of us are really that well trained? Most police can not respond that quickly to immediate life danger.

So sorry that this happened in your state, Kit, but, obviously,it can happen anywhere.
So much for the crap called "An armed public is a polite public," another mindless sound bite!

It is sad that it happens anywhere and that money has prevented CDC from doing the research to identify what are the most effective and the most cost-effective methods to minimize the risks and save students and staff from harm.
