Virginia Tech Tragedy

Kurt —  April 17, 2007

I’m not going to go on a long rant about what happened yesterday, because I have no words that could adequately describe my sadness.

But for those that don’t know this, brilliant Lakers writer Roland Lazenby’s day job is as a professor at Virginia Tech (thanks to True Hoop for reminding me). He nor his class were physically injured in the terrible events.

Lazenby was instrumental in setting up a Web site about news from the campus (long before this event) that you may want to check out, Planet Blacksburg. In addition to the latest on what happened, this site is an example of how the world of information and media is changing, with first hand accounts and comments that provide a detailed and personal version of the story that CNN or Fox News could never do.
