I don’t like to stray too far from baseball here at Twins, Not Twinkies, but with no game to talk about I feel this is appropriate. Yesterday morning at Virginia Tech, a student with two pistols and multiple ammunition clips killed 32 people, injured almost 30 more, and then took his own life. I heard, although no newspaper has said it yet, that the shooting stemmed from an argument he had had with his girlfriend. Somebody came to the dorm to try and resolve the problem and the person snapped and shot them both. It’s already being called a massacre, and is the worst school shooting in history. You can read more about it at any online (or print) newspaper, but here are some links for you:
