Forensic psychiatrist tells ABC it's a bad idea to run the VT shooter's videos over and over: "If you can take Imus off the air, you can certainly keep [Cho] from having his own morning show."

Excellent.  Good point.  Though the Imus clip WAS run over and over and over... no?

I've heard excerpts of the video on NPR radio.  It does give me more insight into the individual -- he was a paranoid nut, trying to punish the wrong people for percieved wrongs done by others.

But just as the first day's echo and re-echo of "The Worst yadd yadd yadda" -- when they actually knew so little about what had happened -- playing and replaying this video is over-doing it.

I haven't seen the clips yet today, I knew they'd be premiered on the Today show though since I saw the ads for that.

So are they good? Worth watching? Or should I just wait for it on DVD?

It is pretty strange.  Also, all of the news sites have pictures of Cho pointing a gun at you.  Talk about violence-prostitutes, it wasnt enough that the guy ran through classrooms killing people.  But, now when we go to cnn.com to find out the weather, and now millions of people are getting this large image of a guy pointing a glock at them.

Has anyone yet pointed out his resemblance to Lara Croft?

"violence-prostitutes"

I'm sincerely curious why this choice of phrase instead of the more common "violence-whores"

Since the "nappy-headed hos" comment, "prostitutes" is the more acceptable term.  I'm guessing.

Someone pointed out that he sounds a lot like Napoleon Dynamite.

Try not to laugh from now on.  You monster.
