I have, I lived in Santa Cruz and went to school there during the 89 earthquake. It's an event that changed the whole campus and town, it's not easy live life after events like that much alone to go to class with that change. It takes a bit more time to clear up events when you are younger, and that includes most anything that rocks your world.
Joe was comparing the Imus incident which college basketball players were called names and got their feelings hurt to a mass murder incident in Virginia. If someone called me a bad name or a friend of mine a bad name I would be able to go on with my life without a hitch, if someone murdered me or someone on the same campus as me then that would rock my world to a severe degree.
For Joe to compare the aftermath of name calling to the aftermath of mass murder is just nutty.
