Tragedy in Blacksburg, VA

It's not Redskins related though I believe tragedies of this level affect all of us and deserve mention for comment and reflection. ABC News has the story:

At least 32 people are dead in what may be the biggest mass shooting in modern American history -- and the death toll may rise.
Although we all hope it doesn't. The shooting occurred on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, VA, just 250 miles outside of Washington D.C.

Though the death toll has fluctuated, at least 20 (though likely more) were pronounced, making this the deadliest shooting on a US campus in history. Thoughts and condolences are with the victims and their families. As has been stated more eloquently elsewhere, the shooting is tragic and senseless and totally avoidable. I have very little patience for this brand of gross, unfortunate and unnecessary crazy that leads to lost lives.

Again, my thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with the victims and their families and all affected.
