I just sat down to write a little for my blog and checked out the news online first. It seems some maniacs have shot to death at least 20 people at the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, VA. It is horrendous and shocking news and will be headline news that will dominate the media for weeks. It should be big news but it will also move even further back into the background the constant death stalking our service men and women and civilians in bush's war. It will do so because unlike the Iraq war, this will have some sense of affecting us all. It could happen on any campus in this country, so we all feel some sense of sacrifice and fear. That is good, but we need to have that same sense over the Iraq war.
