Yesterday was the day that Cho Seung_Hui, a 23 year old S. Korean senior, killed 33 people at Virginia Tech. He committed suicide at the end. It's the biggest mass murder in recent U.S. history. He was a permanent U.S. legal resident. The Columbine massacre was on April 20, 1999. Fifteen people were murdered. Both the killers committed suicide. In 1966, there was a rampage at the University of Texas, in Austin. Charles Whitman murdered 16 people. Policemen shot him to death. It will be the most important news story for quite a while. Because of all the frustration that inevitably comes from our currently prevalent culture of death, we can expect these kinds of things to happen. Abortion, euthanasia, etc. can't be isolated from other parts of life. They inevitably play cause to everything else's role as effect.
