    The weird thing is, i went to school with a guy with the same last name as the gunman (Long). I hope that wasn't his dad.:(

    I remember, vividly, watching MTV in April 1994 when Kurt Loder cut into programming and stated, "it has been reported that Kurt Cobain is the apparent victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head." Makes me wonder how he'd describe one of the 9/11 pilots.
