  •  a drill and a lockdown doesn't seem like (5+ / 0-)

    an overreaction given what happened at VA Tech. In fact, until things are clarified, it seems like the exact right thing to do.

    What would you suggest in its stead?

    •  There was such a drill at work (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is that they are very rare events.  I am more interested in taking positive steps to keep kids in Chicago from killing kids in Chicago.  

      Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism the roles are reversed.

      •  great! me, too (0+ / 0-)

        but aren't you saying stop talking about heart disease because people die of cancer?

        We can walk and chew gum at the same time, and  so long as one does not preclude the other, why is it a problem (as opposed to another thing on the to do list)?
