Number One:

A 75-year-old Israeli professor and Holocaust survivor was killed in the massacre at Virginia Tech on Holocaust Memorial Day, Monday when he leaped between the gunner and his students.

According to eye witnesses the heroic action of Liviu Librescu, a lecturer in the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics, saved the lives of an unknown number of students in his class. Asael Arad, an Israeli Virginia Tech student told Army Radio that “all the students lived — because of him,” The Jerusalem Post reported.

Survived the freaking Holocaust, to be taken out in his old age by some frustrated, disturbed asshole on an entitled kamikaze mission. I close my eyes, and take a deep breath.

Number Two:

‘The girl who led to massacre’: This is the face of the teenage student who may have sparked the biggest gun massacre in US history.

Because out of all the people who could be held accountable in this whole thing – the cops, the university administration, or (I don’t know) the disturbed, maniacal gunman – it’s really all the fault of the girl who he targeted, stalked, and murdered.

I’m finding it increasingly appealing to go buy my own private island in the middle of nowhere. Humanity loses a bit more of its appeal to me every freakin’ day.
