Grey Thoughts
Virginia Tech Copy Cats Everywhere
With everyone on heightened sensitivity after the Virginia Tech shootings, there are at least half a dozen campuses which have been locked down due to threats of violence over the last day or so.

Hasting College in San Francisco.

Wheat Ridge High School in Jefferson County.

7 Buildings in the University of Minnesota.

Provo College in Utah.

North Brunswick High School.

As far as I can remember, this sort of copy cat activity didn't happen after the Columbine shootings. I think this is a very bad sign about the lack of moral culture that is becoming prevalent in the U.S. and Australia.

For more information and opinion on the Virginia Tech massacre, check out Verum Serum's excellent coverage.

Mark Steyn also has interesting observations on the response of the adult students at VTech and how it was only a 76 year old holocaust survivor who instinctively knew that he needed to do anything other than be passive.
It's been a while but I do remember there being copycats after Columbine. There just wasn't as much new media to report it all.

But your point about moral culture is well taken.
