CNN frothing at Virginia Tech

Terribly sad story at Virginia Tech yesterday. CNN is frothing at the mouth.

I watched an interview this morning with a young guy who helped barricade his classroom door, quite likely saving the lives of his classmates. Towards the end of the interview the reporter asked him what he thought of people calling him a hero. He couldn't speak. And the reporter seemed very uncomfortable at the silence. Tears welled up in my eyes at what he must be feeling. I know it had nothing to do with him being called a hero. There was just fear in those eyes.

I bet they'll be running that one all day long.

Poor kids.
