The Question Mark Kid?

AKA,VT Killer,what a freak!

I had just heard about the 8-pg "invective-filled note" he left behind and wondered if anyone else had to look up some of those words? :) I did---wow,Cho,was a smarty! What a sad waste of intelligence. I bet the Lit.teacher that had referred him to counseling and police is glad she did, much to no avail, but at least she feels she did react to her own intuitions.

So, back to my new words, learned from "the Question Mark Kid" :
an "invective-filled note"--noun;
abusive or venomous language used to express blame or censure or bitter deep-seated ill will
"debauchery"--noun;
a wild gathering involving excessive drinking and promiscuity [syn: orgy]
"deceitful charlatans"--noun;
A person who makes elaborate, fraudulent, and often voluble claims to skill or knowledge; a quack or fraud.


I know you were all wondering as well, right?

People are wondering why these school shootings are happening and I just want to say, in a society where so much violence is accepted mainstream in these kids games and movies, on TV etc. coupled w/ parents who are blissfully unaware of what their kids are doing--what do they expect? What you put in; is what comes out.
It's a scary world that our kids are growing up in. I haven't caught any interviews w/ this kids parents and i am interested in that background (i am not saying it is always a parents fault, by any means, but i just wonder how they couldn't have a clue he was so messed up or maybe they did?) gotta go, later.

oo, another new word...
brandishing--
To wave or flourish (a weapon, for example) menacingly

no i haven't seen the updates this morning. i too will want to see what his parents have to say. that 8 pager seems interesting.....weird. i do agree about the highly charged society we live and breathe in....violence is our entertainment. if it's not in your home, it's in your child's friend's home. it's a huge battle for those convicted to fight it.
