I work on at a middle school on Ft. Meade, and today, I noticed as I was leaving that the flag was at half mast. I am assuming that it was not the tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith's son, does anyone know why?

a hostage situation at a school about 40 miles from denver. a guy held a bunch of kids hostage, then shot a girl in the head(which killed her). he then shot and killed himself as SWAT was moving in.

also, in Lakeland, Florida, a guy shot two sheriff's deputies and a police dog after a traffic stop, killing one deputy AND the dog.

Not sure where you are, G, but the flag might be at half-mast in mourning for the school shooting yesterday. Some insane transient man entered a high school, took six students hostage, sexually molested them, and fatally shot one of them before killing himself.

A soldier orginally from Lisbon, Maryland, pretty close to Ft. Meade, was killed in Iraq and there was a memorial service today.

This turned into a depressing little catalogue of the bad stuff that's happened today.

There was also the case in Wisconsin where a Weston Schools principal was shot by a student this morning. Although no-one died from that, at least not yet.
