The Virginia Tech Shootings

What happened today at Virginia Tech is a terrible thing to hear about. Everybody has discussed it in hushed tones and nobody knows really how to react. On the day of such a horrible event, it's hard not to want to know why it happened. Cognitive Daily has an interesting take on the profiling of such individuals--that they seem to be suicidal in some way. This makes sense in that when you kill your fellow students, innocent people, there can't be an endgame beyond that moment. To me, it seems that only somebody who wanted to die could possibly commit such an act. But really, on a day like today, we should just mourn for the family and friends of those affected. These are my rambled thoughts on a very sad day for any American.
