Heavy

I try not to get too heavy around here. I don't talk politics/religion/Don Imus (bastard) but I must say that what happened at Virginia Tech is amazingly sad...my favorite poet Nikki Giovanni works there and to hear her speak of this tragedy (is that even a strong enough word?) will forever be in my memory.

I am also so very sad for one particular victim's family. Liviu Librescu was a holocaust survivor and was married to his wife for over forty years...I am so heart broken for her. http://civilliberty.about.com/b/a/257628.htm
