Emily Jane Hilscher

By Heraclitus

This is a great post on the shootings in Virginia (via). Though I haven't been following the story as closely as many no doubt have, my understanding at this point is that the gunman first shot two students, a woman and a man, two hours before the much larger killing spree. But the university didn't shut down because that was just a "lover's quarrel," obviously not enough of a tragedy to shut down a university. I can't even begin to fathom how fucked that is.

See also this brilliant post by the estimable Jon Swift. Yes, some conservative bloggers, including Malkin and Reynolds, are blaming this on the fact that students aren't allowed to carry concealed weapons.
