The university’s student newspaper reports an officer down. He was taken to Mass General. MIT is asking everyone to remain clear of the Stata Center on 32 Vassar St. There have been social media reports of a description of the shooter but the story is still too fluid and vague to report much further.
At least one of the suspects appears to be a young white male, weirdly unconcerned that cameras might catch him walking by.
I had a random thought watching the FBI’s presser about these images—Klebold and Harris used bombs at Columbine, too. This could be a folie a deux between two psycho friends like that.
Whatever the case, I don’t buy the FBI’s contention there is no active danger as long as whoever planted those bombs is walking free. I just don’t.
From another blog I’m fiddling with.
Words don’t do justice to how much I loved this movie. I know it’s a fictionalization (to some degree) of real history and all that but as an acting tour de force for a number of truly gifted actors and a brilliant vision of an intense moment in American history, Lincoln has no peer in cinema, yet. I’m a history geek since high school and I couldn’t love this movie more.
