Yes please: give me doughnuts: How about using it as a school?

Is Columbine High still a school? How about Virginia Tech?

Columbian still is, but they've turned the library (and maybe the cafeteria) into memorials. Virginia Tech was barely a school to begin with.


I meant Columbine, obviously. The word had been removed from my autocorrect out of respect for the victims.

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: After the Amish school shooting they quietly tore down the building and rebuilt a new school.

That's because the Amish are the human equivalent of Doozers.

Why? Their kids don't go there any more.

heypete: kvinesknows: Is there anyone left alive that saw actual shootings? or just people who were in the building in other rooms?

I seem to recall that there was at least one girl who was in one of the rooms the killer attacked and she survived by playing dead.

/I can't imagine the type of trauma that'd inflict on a kid. No words. :/


My wife is like that when I want to have sex.

Harry! Quit disrupting the class. Go over and stand where Johnny was shot! Not where Meredeth was wounded, you idiot. Where Johnny was shot! Now think about what you've done and try to ignore the tortured cries of anguish that you will hear as you stand in the lonely corner.

"Oh please Misses Graham! I'll be good! I hear the cries of the wounded and the staccato sounds of shell casings hitting the floor. I see their faces! Their souless eyes beckon me to join them! I'll be good!"

Five more minutes, Freakstorm.

nekom: It's a tough call.  All I can really say is it's entirely their business what they decide to do with it.


I hope it remains Sandy Hook Elementary School, as is, and that the community doesn't turn it into anything other than a demonstration that a single crazed individual can't destroy what took them so long to build. Open the doors, talk to the kids, get back to teaching, and continue forward.

incendi: Use it to fuel conspiracy theories and generate some tourism revenues...

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wx9GxXYKx_8

One of my idiot friends shared that video on facebook this morning with this comment:
"I wish the president would answer some questions

What weapon was used
The examiner says rifle but can't say what caliber
Initial reports have 2 not 4 handguns inside

I'm not being insensitive to the event just curious to the facts in play"

It's like Benghazi round two, with even less of a tenuous connection to the presidency!


I saw that this morning too.  What's funny is that the whole thing was spawned by the media's "Get it on the air first" fight, facts be damned. Now they're Just Asking Questions®
