I am from Virgina very close to where the VPI shooter grew up. My brothers still live in the area. It is a creepy feeling when this stuff closes in on where I live and where my family lives. Four towns in NH closed their schools for today and tomorrow due to security threats. I was leaving a meeting in one of those towns when two fighter jets flew over. This is a rare sight since we don't have any bases here. It was shades of 9/11. It turns out the threat was written two years ago by a student but had today's date on it. They tracked the student down and he has since graduated and apparently has turned his life around. The schools remain closed for tomorrow anyway. It is the anniversary of Columbine.
