why is it that.....
.....kids that are picked on now grow up to shoot people. The press is of course reporting that the Virginia Tech shooter was picked on as a younger kid. That never happened when I was a kid and it's not like kids weren't being picked on back then. And it's not that you just didn't hear about it - if kids were shooting people you would have heard about it.
I find myself continually preoccupied with these kinds of questions every time there is one of these shootings.
It seems like our society is in decline. It's like we're reverting back to the "wild west" days. You don't like something - can't cope - you shoot people.
