i sincerely hope nobody is there. and i hope that they catch whoever is involved with this bomb threat. it is unsettling to think there are people here who still want to kill. it is like they have been unaffected by all this.

8:35am e-mail from university:
It was reported that suspicious activity was in burssuss hall. Police reponded. The incident was determined to be unfounded.




Police are leaving. I hope hope hope this is over.
I feel bad for you

I had a similar bomb threat when I was in High School after Columbine happened

Im sorry but I think that was uncalled for on the media's part with showing that picture. Really does anyone need to see that?! Absolutetly sickening to look at.....

Mia just keep on expressing yourself we are not going to judge you on whatever you are incoherent or not. Would rather see you spew it all out than keep it up all bottled up inside.

The way the news is reporting this package is disgusting me to no end. Don't turn on msnbc - they haven't taken his picture down since the story broke (at least everytime I've flipped the channel it's still there). I was just watching Brian Williams and they were talking about how this video is "giving him a voice from the grave" and that it's "terrorizing us after the fact". So, my question is, why show it in the first place? If they really wanted to be so sensitive with this material, they could have given a link on their website for those who were truly curious to see this shit.

Honestly, it didn't take long for the news media to go from 0 to sensationalism, did it?

Well he was one fucked up individual. If they are saying that they reviewed him as mentally ill. Why was nothing done to keep him from society?

I've been in meetings all afternoon, but just read about the package and photos. My homepage was set to MSNBC, but I have to change that now. My god. It is so disturbing.

And Mia, I do not think you have been incoherent at all. I'm amazed at how eloquent and thoughtful all your posts have been. I admire your strength.

Exactly. I just don't get it. Teachers were bothered by him and some wouldn't even let him in their classroom and instead taught him one on one. With that said, why wouldn't they pull him out of classes?

Yeah, so I've noticed.

I don't really need a news page as my homepage anyways. I've just changed it back to my company's website.

It seems that Columbine may have inspired him.

I wonder how many 12-14 year olds are sitting home alone
in front of the T V drinking this in?

I'm just catching up with this latest stuff. this is just sick

all the news shows are analyzing and over analyzing what he must have been thinking, give it a rest. just let this community grieve for what and who they've lost.

i didn't want to learn the contents of the package. but curiosity got the better of me. for the first time, brian williams did not bring me comfort. that was very hard to stomach. it was my own damn fault. i should've listened to deep.

i'm not watching any more news tonight. i'm at my apt now where i don't have cable, which is a wonderful thing.

tonight, my friend and i are just gonna listen to music and paint. i haven't painted in years. so...this should be interesting. hopefully i will do something silly, stain my carpet, get high off turpentine, and forget what has been going on outside of my door, even if just for a few hours.

I hope Korean students everywhere don't face prejudice and backlash because of one psycho!

Mia getting away mentally from this for even a little while sounds like a good idea.

I guess it's a question of will analyzing this person somehow help us understand and prevent future occurences?

And are we doing the families and friends of those lost injustice by talking about him?

I don't know the answers to these questions...
