    There are lots of comments on the facebook page posted above. Anyone hear if the shooter was a student? Very sad. Prayers to all involved.

    What's it say about a country where one can feel good that only one person was seriously wounded at a school shooting, instead of dozens, as this kind of thing is now par for the course? God save us.

    A Twitter account is a very handy thing - particularly following @TheMatthewKeys, who is a Reuters tech guy, can't think of his official title. Almost everything I posted was stuff he's tweeted or retweeted, info and links. Also, following major news organizations gets info fast - BBC, Reuters itself, AP, etc. etc.
