Silence is a Memoriam, Not a Reason to Stop Blogging
“A day of silence is a memoriam. It is not a reason to stop blogging. It’s not a reason to stop talking. If anything, preparation before and after the event are the best times to do some serious talking and blogging.”
As for me, I’m going to play my imaginary copy of Grand Theft Auto IV on my imaginary Xbox 360 in remembrance of all the tragedy in this world. And maybe re-watch the SNL Digital Short: Dear Sister (“Hide & Seek” music by Imogen Heap) for the umpteenth times (And just in case NBC shoot down the link, here’s another one). Well yes, it might strike anyone else as crass and rude in the wake of Virginia Tech University rampage that left 32 dead victims (plus 1 gunman who committed suicide), then again my thoughts are with them…really, I do.
On Boing Boing:
- Why the shootings mean that we must support my politics
- Virginia Tech mass shooting: Who or what is Ismail Ax?
The classic article “Why the Bombings Mean That We Must Support My Politics” was written for 9/11, but it deserves repeating now, in the wake of the Virginia Tech shootings.
The Virginia Tech shooter [Cho Seung-Hui] had the words “Ismail Ax” written in red ink on his arm, according to this blog from the Chicago Tribune.What does that mean? A google search shows nothing. Maybe the readers of Boing Boing could shed some light on this?
