I'm freaked out by the shootings at NIU. I was in my class last evening (which happens to be in a lecture center this semester). As the students were having group discussions, I turned off the projector and went on the internet to check my email. That's when I saw the headline, about two hours after the event happened. It was creepy.
On a completely different note, we watched Daughter from Danang a couple of days ago. I got the DVD a couple of years ago. PBS sent it to me for free when I bought a bunch of others I was reviewing to see whether they would be appropriate for one of my classes. It was very interesting and thought-provoking, definitely worth seeing.
