I'll start off by noting that the coverage of the Virginia Tech shooting has been excessive, in my opinion. I understand the imperatives of news coverage and don't mean to suggest that we should have ignored it. But I do worry that there are dozens of lonely, armed kooks out there who are finding their inspiration in Cho's "achievement."
I especially question NBC's handling of Cho's package. I wish they had shown more restraint. This precedent will be copied.
