Luto for Virginia Tech

Today’s post is not about immigration, amnesty, or Americans who retire abroad.

I was perusing the web when I came across a breaking news story: a gunman had opened fire on the Virginia Tech campus this morning, at least one person was dead. An hour later, the estimated was 22.

As a college professor in Virginia, this incident obviously hits close to home. One of the beauties of campus life, particularly in Virginia, is that the campus buildings are open. Students, professors and visitors walk freely in a place that is very much part of everyday life, but nonetheless a world apart.

Today that world changed. I extend my deepest sympathies to the Virginia Tech community, as well as their families. The dark shadow of the events there touch all of us.
