My feelings on the high school killings (that seem to have become a cute little trend in "this day and age", can be summarized in the words of a couple of favorite people. Although these words do not encompass all of my opinions, they do a surprisingly good job of expressing the gist.

"You hear about some kid who did something stupid, something desperate. What possessed him. How could he do such a terrible thing. It's really quite simple actually. Consider the life of a teenager. You have parents, teachers telling you what to do. You have movies, magazines, and TV telling you what to do. But you know what you have to do. Your job, your purpose, is to get accepted, get a cute girl friend, and think up something great to do with the rest of your life. What if you're confused and can't imagine a career? What if you're funny looking and you can't get a girl friend? You see no one wants to hear it, but the terrible secret is that being young is sometimes less fun than being dead.

'Angel' by Joel Spector "Suicide is wrong, but the interesting thing about it is how uncomplicated it seems. There you are, you got all these problems swarming around your brain, and here is one simple, one incredibly simple solution. I'm just surprised it doesn't happen every day around here.

"You see, there's nothing to do anymore. Everything decent's been done. All the great themes have been used up. Turned into theme parks. So I don't really find it cheerful to be living in totally exhausted decade where there is nothing to look forward to and no one to look up to." -Happy Harry Hardon

"The violent crimes? All perfectly natural in a society whose advances are limited to it's technology. The basic behavior of the modern human is hardly different form that of its primitive ancestors. The only noticeable changes are trends. Whether in suit or in a loincloth, people are ignorant little thorns, cutting into one another. They seem incapable of advancing beyond the violent tendencies, which at one time were necessary for survival.

'Death' by Brian Froud "As for protecting the people, well that's a bit of a paradox - at least from what I know. I'm sure that if you searched into the lives of some of these victims you would find out that they, themselves, were the cause of their very deaths. In those cases, the so-called "victim," at some earlier time, played some part in the creation of their "killer." I believe that the life ended was ended for the fact that it was wasted on something that would never evolve beyond the childish cruelty so many never cast off." -Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
