|Charles Whitman 2 - Virginia Tech Shootings

Nobody may recognize the name of Charles Whitman.
This link details Charles's disturbing shooting rampage at the University of Texas.
Remember that name when this breaks into further news reports.
A person has shot multiple people on the campus of Virginia Tech.
Local news claims over 20 dead, many more wounded.
A friend of mine is a VA Tech Grad, and he's pretty freaked out over it. This year is his 15th reunion, and this is pretty tragic stuff.
This is nuts. Sheer nuts.
I've literally witnessed people write shit like:
"THIS IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF VIRGINIA TECH."
You know, when I think of the University of Texas, I don't think of Charles Whitman. When I think of Florida State University, I don't think of Ted Bundy. Most large universities don't let or fear the definition of their school be written in blood.
It is nuts.
I've seen people write:
"We're all VT Hokies today."
That makes more sense, at least, to me. Everyone can feel their pain.
