Virgina Tech: April 16, 2007

What is it about spring and whackjobs killing students?

Today, an as yet unnamed shooter killed 33 people (including himself) at Virginia Tech University.  Horrific details which will be made manifest over the next few days, drawing comparisons to Columbine and the University of Texas’ famed tower.

The perpetrators of those, however, were pikers compared to a school trustee who resented a local school’s tax drain on his pocketbook.
Andrew P. Kehoe killed 45 people — the great majority of whom were children in grades two through six — with an enormous amount of explosives on May 18, 1927 in Bath, Michigan.  He and his wife — his first victim — are included in the count.
