Blame someone

The blame game has started over the shootings at Virginia Tech after what appears to be the nations deadliest shooting incident. The news reports now at almost 8 p.m. CDT — about 12 hours after the first shots were fired — say at least 33 people were dead but it remains unclear if one or more shooters were involved.

It would be prudent for people to not start pointing fingers until the basic details have been sorted out. Of course, maybe the blame coming like lightning from cable TV and the Internet is a normal reaction if one subscribes the Elizabeth Kubler Ross model of grief. Kubler Ross said that the stages, which include anger, does not necessarily appear in order.

We will eventually see how this story plays out and who gets the biggest heap o’ blame beside the killer or killers. I suppose you just can’t fight grief.
