on time

more shooting in school
St. Louis gathers more ghosts
soulless at its heart

n.b. It was just four weeks ago I walked past Central Visual & Performing Arts High School on Arsenal Street. It was a beautiful, sunny morning.

Pass any school in the USA and it sets one thinking about intruder prevention, safety drills, panic rooms, mitigation procedures and emergency responders.

I am not sure whether to be grateful that so few were killed, or horrified at how these events occur so frequently.

Rest in peace Jean Kuczka and your teenage student.
