And you can bet they were all good churchgoin' boys...

Pissy mood as bits o' The Crappier Side of Teaching/Students begin to surface (you KNOW there is some meaty reading coming on a certain curmudgeony teaching blog), as per usual, with the approach of finals, which really just serves as seasoning in my general bleakness about our country and society in view of a certain warmongering commander-in-chief, recent events at VT and now this. Whether it turns out to be a hate crime or not (duh - altho does that make me just as prejudiced as the people who committed the attack? the fact that I am convinced in my gut that it was exactly what it seems to be?) it just adds to the wonder that is life in the US nowadays, and the particular euphoria we (compassionate, thinking) people on the Plains get to enjoy.
