VA Tech News, Developments, Mourning

Hard to ignore what’s going on in Virginia right now, as the media is closing in on everything about the horrific shooting. New York Times reporters Shaila Dewan and John M. Broder send in a dispatch from the scene, where questions about the delayed response are the next thing needing to be answered:

At the time of the dormitory shootings, Col. W. Steven Flaherty, the superintendent of the Virginia State Police, said, “There was certainly no evidence or no reason to think that there was anyone else at that particular point in time.”

State officials continued to defend the actions of the campus authorities. John W. Marshall, the Virginia secretary of public safety, said Charles W. Steger, the president of Virginia Tech, and Chief Wendell Flinchum of the campus police “made the right decisions based on the best information that they had available at the time.”

The gang at Brooklyn Vegan are using music to help with the process. They’ve tipped us off to Marissa Nadler’s great track “Virginia.”
