Va. Tech

Wow. I just found out that my friend and neighbor John's father was one of the people who was wounded in yesterday's shootings at Tech. Thankfully, by all accounts he's okay. John and his gf Stephanie have gone down to Blacksburg. I imagine John's been hit hard by all of this--he's from Blacksburg, and his family have been knit up in Tech's community so tight that sometimes, when we talk about the ACC, I have to remind him that he went to NC State.

I've tried my level best to write cogently on this whole thing, but man, I take absolutely no joy in it. Can't they fire Wolfowitz tomorrow and get a YouTube up of him walking dejectedly out of the World Bank with a box full of his personal effects? America could really use the laugh.
