Lame... It was a bad idea to use school plans to make it authentic, but its still a really cool creative project on his part.

This was in the US right?

I think the americans are starting to go too far in anti-terror enforcement.

If that was in the US, tehn i think it's more related to the killing that happened in Virginia Tech.

this is unbelievable. i thought i could be paranoid at times. this map will probably get more circulation than the los angeles times. and rightly so.

its a game. people are casting about for something to blame for the recent massacre. they blame it on a video game becasue they refuse to believe that one person can be that big of an a**hole.

when are we going to hold people acountable for their actions, instead of trying to find something to blame besides the criminal.

a sad state of affairs
