All of you have heard about the news coming out of Virginia Tech. I learned about it during our lunch hour and had to watch a few of my colleagues scramble to touch base with spouses and children who attend school or work at the school. Every year we send some of our best students to Virginia Tech and I know a couple of people who teach in the History Department. My thoughts go out to the families of the victims and rest of the Virginia Tech community.
This is truly a horrible day.
