i just went to see new model army. by coincidence, the last time they were here was almost exactly a year ago, right after the jokela shooting incident. justin sullivan made a note of this, how they unfortunately always seem to come here on a bad bad week. last year he made some genuinely grim and angry words about the cowardness of these shooters, followed by a pretty intense version of 'purity'.
this time he said something before 'high', something that i found really true, something very similar to what i myself have always found very solacing. he said:

"when bad stuff happens - i know this is a bad week in lots of different ways - and when bad stuff happens the best thing to do is to get high - by which i mean not smoking drugs and stuff which is the kind of an easy way. but actually - and it's difficult in this country cause it's flat - but you find somewhere high, a mountain or a top of a high building, and you look out over the whole land and you know it'll still be exactly the same long time after we're all dead - which is a good feeling.
this is called 'high'."

...The movers move, the shakers shake, the winners write their history

But from high on the high hills it all looks like nothing

All these things you fear so much depend on angles of vision

From down in the maze of walls you can’t see what’s coming

But from high on the high hills it all looks like nothing

But from high on the high hills it all looks like nothing, nothing...

Not exactly school-related, but it must have been "international crazy day" or something:

a highly disturbed man shoots his ex-girlfriend who he had been harassing for 10 years. the man  went to the store where she worked, shot her and also shot her work colleagues (who had been known to give her help against that lunatic).  everything happened in a busy mall on new year's eve.

if some people want to shoot themselves because they are disappointed with their own lives, by all means, they can go ahead, i won't object. but these wackos who need to prove something by taking other people with them -  :roll: :evil:

Today:

"On December 14, 2012, 28 people, including 20 children, were killed in a mass shooting in the Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Connecticut. Eighteen children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, before the gunman, tentatively identified as Adam Lanza, 20, shot himself."

I don't live in the US but is incredible that you can buy there guns like if you were buying chewing gums. I think until this is not changes, terrible things like this will likely happen again.
