    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    The only thing I can come with as to who would do something like this is a person who is an inept, ineffectual coward in real life. There is not courage or glory in making a threat through a means of communication where no one can see who the person is. This does not appear to have been for a purpose like a diversion to accomplish another goal. In any case a "problemed" individual.

    If one person was injured, let alone killed, as a result of this nonsense that is too high a price. What do you think?

    It would have been a tragedy.

    It is creepy how this is going on at so many campuses at once today.

    Dry run?
