Has anybody heard the language change over the shooting at Virginia Tech since this morning?
First it was The Worst Mass Shooting in US History.
It’s gone through several changes, and now it’s the Worst Mass Shooting in MODERN US History.
I guess somebody started counting all the dead Indians.
I’m waiting for someone to add that it was the Worst Mass Shooting in Modern US History ON THIS CONTINENT.
(Someone near and dear said it was The Worst Mass Shooting in US History BY AN AMATEUR. As an ex-doorgunner, he sometimes gets a little snarky about newbies butting into professional status.)
