virgina tech

what the hell is going on? what a senseless tragedy. i can't even imagine what the parents of virginia tech students are going through right now. at iowa we had a fellowship named for a woman who was shot and killed by a deranged recent graduate called the anne cleary award. the guy received his ph.d. and then shortly thereafter hunted down and killed his dissertation committee and an associate vice president (cleary) of the university. an article about the iowa shootings is here.

my dad also has a really creepy rememberance of charles whitman, who sat behind him in an engineering class during summer school and one day failed to show up...
