  • The references I've seen to "worst" qualify it with "school shooting".
    • I would agree with brian here. However, I am already tired of the media reporting on it. A lot more could be said...but not here and not now.
    • I can't comment on the pudge posting because it is a "no foes" whatever that means.

      The big "political" problem I see is that the court system ruled him "crazy" but that never went anywhere.

Now every other insecure lunatic can have, not just 15 minutes of fame, but a guaranteed week long biography spewed out to the world as they try to one-up him.
