My guess is that the afterlife ain’t all he was expectin’.
I guess I’ve missed any news on these files. This is a bit odd:
The missing files were released nearly five weeks after they were discovered at the home of the former director of the university’s counseling center.
Is something weird going on here? Were the files previously reported “lost” or something?
Got google alerts for all of these stories today:

These are all from the past two or three days and aren’t simply re-runs of AP items in different papers. All of these have considerable, if not exclusively, local content. I could easily have included many, many more.
No doubt, the media coverage is feeding the flames a bit. As is the fact that hunting seasons are kicking off or underway in most states right now. But the trend is unmistakable.
It doesn’t seem to be localized to the bitter, clingy parts of the nation. Or to the red states.
This is odd:
A battle re-enactment last month pushed realism to the limits: a retired New York City police officer portraying a Union soldier for a documentary film was shot in the shoulder, possibly by a Confederate re-enactor.
The shooting sent the 73-year-old to the hospital and left the Isle of Wight Sheriff’s Office in rural southeastern Virginia with a Civil War-style CSI case. Investigators used film to piece together what happened and have narrowed a suspect to one re-enactor.
The story goes on to say
Re-enactors said [Thomas R.] Lord’s shooting may have happened in part because walk-ons were used. These are re-enactors who typically are not affiliated with a unit and unfamiliar with the chain of command or safety rules, akin to a football player showing up on game day to play for a team the athlete has never met.
I’m confused. Are they saying that some of the walk-on may not have realized that this particular re-enactment didn’t use real bullets?
“Oops! My bad, guys! In my regular group, we shoot each other for real. I didn’t realize this one didn’t.”
I’m wondering what the victim was shot with. Not the type of gun, but what actually hit him. A minie ball? Or something used as wadding or something? Maybe a pebble or some other debris in the powder? It doesn’t seem that paper debris would cause an injury severe enough to be called “getting shot,” but they don’t say what hit him.
Thankfully, he’s going to be okay. (Image from Farmers Lodge # 168)
Days of our Trailers on the Brady Bunch’s plan to stage a lie (heh) in at VT: Let them protest.:
Let them show not only the students at VT what they’re all about but all the people watching the coverage. Show them that the PuSH’ers will do anything and dance on anybody’s grave to get what they want.
Normally I don’t mind seeing lunatics act out in public, as it does much more to hurt their cause than to help. Generally speaking, the only people they’re convert to their side are other moonbats, but they’ll alienate some of the more moderate believers and cause wide swaths of the general population to shun them for the morons that they are.
In this case, I guess, I’m not quite so sure because I sure don’t want what should be a somber day and ceremony broken up by a bunch of loonies.
Elbert Tillman, Jr., age 35, of Suffolk, pled guilty today to possession of firearms and ammunition by a person who is an unlawful user of a controlled substance and possession of firearms not registered to him in the National Firearm Registration and Transfer Record…
According to court documents, Tillman was arrested after a search warrant of his property was executed on December 29, 2007. The search resulted in the seizure of 21 rifles and handguns; explosive materials, including C-4 plastic explosives, a Claymore antipersonnel mine, incendiary grenades, detonation cord, blasting caps; and anabolic steroids.
He’s had the stockpile for years. His girlfriend had been concerned about the explosives and sent photos to the authorities.
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine is making good a promise to veto legislation that makes it easier to carry concealed guns.
His office this morning announced that Kaine is refusing to sign a Senate bill that would allow Virginians to carry a concealed weapon in a motor vehicle as long as it’s locked in a glove box or container.
Another Senate bill blocked by the Democrat would have permitted people to carry concealed weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol.
The motor vehicle bill has the best chance of overcoming the veto.
