Date: Mon, 1 Dec 1997 13:18:28 EST From: Bapopik Subject: "Something Big Is Going to Happen" A student opened fire on fellow students in Kentucky today, killing or injuring eight. He then put down the gun and said he was "sorry." Echoing Timothy McVeigh's words ("Something big is going to happen"), the student had told other students on Friday that "something big is going to happen." Why does "something big is going to happen" have to preface mass murder? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------- In my college days back in Troy, NY, "I am a Trojan" was always good for laughs....It's always nice to see The New York Times pay attention to slang--on its editorial page, no less--but the writing will put you to sleep. Try a paragraph or two before going to bed.
