Nine Killed in School Shooting in Finland

Today, nine students are dead and others critically wounded in a school shooting in the little town of Kauhajoki, Finland (pop. 14,000). Like school shooters before him, the gunman had posted videos on YouTube ahead of time. The videos have been removed at this time. The police had questioned the suspect on Monday, but had not taken his gun. After killing others, the shooter shot himself in the head and is now in a coma.

What a sick world.

It sucks that this happened on my birthday. Of course, it would've sucked about as much on any other day. Too bad there wasn't better news from Finland to remind me of the Mischevious Muse.

Sorry I haven't been checking, as my new router blocks blogspot for some reason, and I haven't had time to fix it.
