I got up my nerve to get on a plane, leave Missouri, and fly to Virginia to visit my friend Sue. Wouldn't you just know that I no sooner got out here than some nut started taking potshots at people? Just a half-hour before he shot the woman at a Spotsylvania mall, I was there! I'm going home where all I have to do is watch this board for excitement.

I hope you make it home O.K. I think there are more nuts and people that go off the deep end in the city, but it can happen anywhere. I remember bout 20 years ago some nut destroyed an entire family up north of Clearwater B.C. They were out camping in a remote area. Talk about bad luck. Sure makes you think bout travelling though don't it.

It's a real shame that your trip got ruined by that nut, course I guess some people had worse day! How is it that you finally get to make a trip like that and then some total nutcase goes on the warpath.
I don't blame you for heading home and holing up. I have been thinking about that deal alot the last few days.
The thought of being afraid to go outside my own home is just not something I can understand.
I think that your experience can remind all of us how good we have it in this country no matter how hard the politicians try to screw it up.
Glad you're home safe
