    That sounds like a pretty good description. The guerilla doesn't have to win to be successful. He only has to not lose.

    Sick, just sick.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Some stations I've heard claim it was a guy looking for his girlfriend. Went to the dorm room first, then to the class room. Don't know who he was, nor who the girlfriend was [as in I haven't seen any names yet] nor do I know if this is a true description of events or merely speculation on the part of the radio stations.

    I was in college during Columbine, and attended a class with a pair of girls who were witnesses to the shooting in Paducah Kentucky around that same time period and I saw how paralyzed these girls became during class when news of another school shooting broke out. I still think of those girls every time I read of a school or office shooting, and frankly it affects me and I wasn't even there. It's something the students at Va Tech will be affected by most likely for the rest of their lives.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That's absolutely true. I was in a classroom across the hall from a hostage situation while in high school. Fortunately in our case, no shots were fired, but I can still remember the fear we felt even without having heard gun fire. It's not something you can easily let go of.

    As an alum of VT, this is one of the saddest days of my life.

    One of the girls at work is just beside herself. Her niece is a student there and an engineering major. No one has heard from her yet today.

    I am hoping it is just the chaos and phone lines being jammed.

    Just horrible.

    I'll be hoping they do hear from her soon Team Dunn.

    Man, this is terrible. I have a friend from high school that is a grad student in engineering there. I also am friends with 3 other VT engineering students from work last summer. Really a terrible situation and I am just praying the four people I know made it out ok.

    This is awful.


    The death toll keeps rising, too.

    I just hope this doesn't spur more campus shootings in the future. It's just unbelieveable.

    Re: Mass Shooting at Va Tech. 31 Dead, 28 Injured [reportedly]

    Nothing yet. She left work early to be with her family and is supposed to call me as soon as she hears anything.

    If anyone happens to hear anything about Sarah Groh please let me know.

    Several students were calling various media outlets and we were listening to them for awhile and some of the articles online have quotes from students. We just keep hoping something will turn up. I just can't believe she would not have contacted her parents ASAP.

    My prayers are out for the families and everyone affected. Such a sad story.

    I can't help but wonder what made a guy fly off like that. No concern for human life. It's just sad that someone could be that far gone.

    A "lone Asian male" is being described as the shooter, or at least one of them.
