When was that? The Bath School Bombing was committed in 1927, back when there was school prayer and everybody lived an Andy Hardy existence. It killed 38 students, more than Lanza or that Virginia Tech loser. Here's a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_School_Disa...

Your user name is interesting. Brings up an important aspect of life as a human being.
Going through life alone is something no one wants to do. People have a need for companionship.
You will never get rid of a Jesus for that reason.
There's is nothing wrong with being a private person and Henry David Thoreau would agree. The need for companionship is a popular consensus among the mob, not a dictum.

Being a private person is usually a developed taste.

A lot depends on the choices of who or what to associate with.

Yes we will run with those who are able to demonstrate observable data vs people who puke out flowery speech.

Your sister meatball would approve.

Not really. For those who enjoy their own company, the idea of being alone is not some stark departure from their normal state.

So I quoted Isaiah about god commanding every infant put to the sword, every house robbed and every woman raped and you post this? So you are naturally saying that the gunman was using the bible as his justification for the shooting. This is a distinct possibility seeing as how he and his mother were devout Christians and his mom was trying to pray his mental illness away.

We can see how well that worked.

Take your meds before you do something like that. Sorry Serah but you just can't pray your crazy away.

Walken, Malkovich and Buscemi could play every "over 50" male role for the next decade and it would be OK with me.

I watched Malkovich as Cyrus the Virus tonight. Buscemi was Garland Greene.

What about Tom Hanks? Sometimes you need a clean cut old guy.
