VTThere is nothing sensible to say about Virginia Tech. Naturally, we can rehearse the same old arguments about gun control, but we already know that America has an addiction to guns and won't get treatment.
There is no deeper lesson but that kids bully each other, form gangs and make each others' lives a misery, and misery will sometimes strike out and hurt others. Not that anyone deserves this outcome: not the shooter, not his classmates. We cannot unravel any of this shit until we unravel ourselves, make of ourselves the world we could have.
There is nothing sensible to say but to express sympathy for the victims, children cut down by a bewildering hatred, an unbearable sadness for their parents and the communities they were part of.
