The Numbers

Just taken at face value, this little bit from Pravda by the Bay doesn’t seem to say too much:

On April 20, 1999, it was Columbine High School: 15 dead, 23 wounded. On April 16, 2007, it was Virginia Tech University: 33 dead, 29 wounded.

Only if you know that 15 dead includes the two pukes who murdered everyone, and 33 dead includes the murderer himself.  They don’t deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence (even indirectly) with the people who they destroyed.  But you can be sure that in every single story from now to the end of time, Pravda and its kin will note that there were 33 dead at Virginia Tech.  In their small way doing their best to make sure that the murderers are considered victims.  And destroying the memory of all those lives taken.
