Against My Better Judgement

OK, after hearing about this from some friends and listening to it on the CBC, I have to weigh in on the latest Goth who fantasized about death story. Here's what I want to say:

  • Contrary to eye-witness reports, Kimveer Gill was not white. He was an Indian. I know we white males pretty much own the psycho killer realm, but this one was not one of us. Let's give credit where it's deserved.
  • Let's not delve into months of self-reflection about what this means. An idiot did an idiotic thing. We are not going to make sense of it.
  • Kimveer hated jocks. Was the one person he managed to kill a jock? Probably not. If you're going to be a psycho with a gun, at least be good at it.
  • I know we're going to blame computer games on this one. Normally, I would poo-poo the idea, but when there are sociopaths out there making games called Super Columbine Massacre, I think it's time we examine what is a reasonable expression of your programming skills. Right now I'm thinking "Exterminate the brutes."
  • Don't allow Kimveer to be another Marc Lepine. Let him die in ignominy and let's move on. Let's honour his victims while not speaking his name.
  • I think it's safe to say that nobody needs to wear a black trench coat when it isn't raining. I declare open season on black trenchcoats in fair weather.
  • You should insist that the next Goth you see who is obsessed with death volunteer at the morgue. It should be fun. Make sure they are there when families come to identify their loved ones.
I wish to extend my condolences to all the victims of this bullshit. Try to find comfort in the thought that, if there is a hell, Kimveer is in it right now.
