Sniper at VTU

Just yesterday, I found out one of my son's friend's brother is going to go to VTU this fall. Now this story breaks out about a sniper there.

Page 2 of the article says this is the worst such incident since a 1966 incident at University of Texas. When I read that, I immediately thought of the Harry Chapin song "The Sniper". It's on a CD that I own, along with rosey songs like "Sunday Morning Sunshine", "Cat's in the Cradle", "Taxi" and "Dreams Go Bye".

"The Sniper" (the song) is very dark. When it comes by on my jukebox, I skip to the next song. Just this morning, I was contemplating deleting so I wouldn't hear it. Very dark.

My heart goes out to the families of those involved at VTU.
