Blacksburg Massacre

What can one say about today's mass killing at Virginia Tech, in Blacksburg, Virginia ? Why the pathologically deranged must involve others in their own drive to suicide is, thankfully, beyond the understanding of most of us.
The madman is dead, but not his work: he has left us the inconsolable grief of the bereaved, ever facing the empty chair at the table.

It surely is nothing short of a tragedy. My heart and prayers go out to them.
