London Bridge is Falling Down

Today, in London, England, more than two people were killed in what was determined by the police to be a terrorist attack. This would be the second terrorist attack in London in the course of less than a month. The attack today may or may not be connected to the one on May 22.

This horrifies me. There's something terrifying about the fact that there are human beings out there who are willing to other people (often including children, handicapped people, and the elderly) for inane reasons (if any at all).

Evergreen Race S___show

Yesterday, I reported that there were riots going on at TESC, due to one professor questioning unrealistic demands made by the student body.

Today, TESC has been shut down for the weekend.

The Associated Press has published an article about the shutdown, providing an analysis of what led up to the closure (including a phone call made by an as-of-now anonymous person):

In addition, the Seattle Times released a copy of a 911 call about the college via Soundcloud, featuring a person announcing their plan to kill so-called "communist scumbags" (NSFW):

So now, it's a shitshow on both sides. As a result of (essentially pointless) riots over outlandish demands made by Cooper Point Journal writers, as well as an extremist threatening to murder people with a weapon, TESC has devolved into a state of chaos.

Way to go. Because the best way to argue is to riot and threaten death, right?
