I suppose I should make some sort of comment on the Virginia Tech shootings but I'm not sure what to say other than it's incredibly sad.
If this blog had a theme it would be that politics and pop culture aren't all that different. That's why I usually find it so easy to identify a quote from a movie or t.v. show to go with the issue of the day. In this case I don't feel like talking about either politics or pop culture in regards to this tragedy so I'll deviate from the usual format for this one post.
I'm avoiding political commentary from the left and the right on this tragedy as I think it's inappropriate in light of the immediacy of the suffering taking place on that campus. I see that President Bush is heading down to the campus today. As much as I enjoy taking shots at the man I won't fault him for that. It is a function of his job and completely proper that he do so.
There will be a time for discussing the hows and whys of what happened but I think now is just a time to throw a thought or a prayer to the victims and maybe give your kids an extra hug after work.
