From the NYT: Virginia Tech victims

As it did for the victims of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, the New York Times has a profile page for each of the 32 shooting death victims from Monday’s tragedy at Virginia Tech. I’ve tried to limit my media exposure on this because it becomes too much after a while. Especially when there is no news to report, only speculation and rebroadcasts of press conferences and the gunman’s manifesto.

What struck me as I read a few of the profiles is the death of potential good: a band player who volunteered in food drives and worked as a student resident advisor; a Holocaust survivor who blocked the door to prevent the gunman from entering a room; a 35-year-old German instructor who died and is survived by his wife who also teaches in the department.

Words can be so inadequate at times like this.

    NBC created this monster and they are trying to create another one by playing his propaganda video over and over. All the victims’ families should join together in a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT against NBC for wrongful death. You don’t believe it? Well, why did he sent his garbage to NBC? He knew that his propaganda would be shown by them because all he was really doing was mimicking their propaganda anyway. The Left says all us crackers deserve to die for what some moronic morons who lived 200 years ago did, and this guy just took that stupidity to it’s illogical conclusion. NBC is Cho’s father and ABC is his mother, and they are proud of their bastard child. Just turn on the TV and you can see their pride and joy.

    Leftist’s who have nothing but murder in their hearts say “If You Don’t Want to Watch the Cho Video, Don’t Watch.” Let me add, that if you DO want to watch the video, then you are monster and will burn in hell right beside him for all eternity.
