17. So, does it really matter?
Edited on Mon Apr-16-07 01:42 PM by greyghost
He may very well be Asian, so what?

Charles Whitman had blonde hair, blue eyes, and was as American as apple pie, and this poor lost soul blew his head count away.

What a tragedy.

In the coming days I'm sure his whole life story will be revealed.

My question is, why wasn't the campus locked down immediately?
