Like most, I am overwhelmed by the tragedy that occurred at Virginia Tech. But I am slightly perturbed by President Bush's actions. He decided that all flags should be raised half-staff today as well as attended a convocation ceremony in memory of the slain.

The rule for half-staff is that the President or a State Governor can decree the flag to fly low in honor of the death of national or state figures. As sad as what happened at VT is, I'm not sure that it really qualifies.

And perhaps, I wouldn't mind so much if we weren't flying flags at half-mast today on post. We've had close to 3000 soldiers die in the war on Iraq thus far. Why can't our flags ever be lowered for them? Why can't the President attend their memorial services? It just makes me wonder.

Yeah, this is pretty much the way I always pictured it.

To the person who made carseats so hard to install.

Screw you, buddy. May you have four children, twitchy muscles and no latch system in your car.

Can't we give it a day people?

The bodies are still warm and people are already going batshit over gun laws and immigration reform. Can't we at least give the victims' families a day or two of peace before we try to make some kind of lobby out of this tragedy?

Some people have no soul.

Some sociopathic idiot broke into a school, made his way into the janitor's closet, stole 6 contains of industrial strength drain cleaner and then through it all over the playground equipment.

And how did we learn that this was done? Because a two year old headed down the slide yesterday expecting a little fun and received 2nd and 3rd degree burns on his legs. It is rare that I am horrified by a news story these days but this one had me all twisted up in knots.

When they find out who did this, I'm all for an eye for an eye here. Let's throw some of that cleaner on his pecker and see how it likes it.
