here we go. the author of today's shooting spree at Montreal's Dawson College (1 dead, 19 injured, some of whom are in critial condition), Kimveer Gill, had a blog/online identity ("had", because he was gunned down by police in a shootout). the media didn't need anything more than his writings and pictures to paint another lazy portrait of a social misfit - Natural Born Killers, Ozzy Osbourne, dark clothing, and fantasies of dying in a hail of bullets like Romeo and Juliet(?). thanks for not making an effort. let the media circus (sadly) begin again.
btw, i was floored when i heard the news of gunshots being heard at the college this afternoon. sadly, it is different when it happens in your own backyard. i spent the evening in a weird daze at work. i couldn't put my finger on it. i felt sad for the students who were going through this horrific ordeal. my sympathies to everyone affected by this tragedy.
