Al's Rantings

A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

Location: Virginia

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

April 16 tragedy internal review committees

The overview of the findings concerning the Virginia Tech murders has been released.

On the Security Infrastructure it was found:
good cooperation and sound agreements between Virginia Tech and local police, fire, and EMS jurisdictions including ongoing training exercises; sound emergency communications; robust communications infrastructure; a sound emergency preparedness plan; engagement of the leadership in campus emergencies; and a nationally accredited campus police department.
Having a nationally accredited campus police department did little to affect the murders that took place.

The security group recommends enhancements in physical infrastructure, emergency communications, emergency preparedness, and selected protocols.
Nothing about students and staff protecting themselves as far as I can see. Too bad. I will read the entire report just to be sure.

Her blue eyes turned upon me with a sweet deprecation. Running away has always been inherent in the negro.. Through condensation of the dream certain constituent parts of its content are explicable which are peculiar to the dream life alone, and which are not found in the waking state.. If Titbottom had been only a little younger, a little handsomer, a little more gallantly dressed--in fact, a little more of the Prince Charlie, I am sure her eyes would not have fallen again upon her work so tranquilly, as he resumed his story.. This was perhaps because his work was never merely humorous, but always had a big sweep of background to it, like the ruggedness of the Kentucky mountains from which he came.. He caught up the Colonel's stick, which was lying on the table.. Hotchkiss, in trembling indignation.. IX THE UNCONSCIOUS AND CONSCIOUSNESS--REALITY On closer inspection we find that it is not the existence of two systems near the motor end of the apparatus but of two kinds of processes or modes of emotional discharge, the assumption of which was explained in the psychological discussions of the previous chapter.. What you need is--let me see--yes, a nice bottle of wine.. On account of poliomyelitis a girl, not quite four years of age, was brought from the country into town, and remained over night with a childless aunt in a big--for her, naturally, huge--bed.. He flicked away the dust from his spotless white trousers and varnished boots with his handkerchief, and settled his black cravat under his Byron collar as he neared his office.. And in this case, there was a double grievance; the guests being all impatience to get off to a better place.. As things stand, the saddest state prison I ever visit is that Representatives' Chamber in Washington.. Kamp, said Uncle Billy, pouncing on the money.. The question of the unconscious, in psychology is, according to the authoritative words of Lipps, less a psychological question than the question of psychology.. Went as mate in a fishing-schooner.. I betook myself again to my nap, and at length a second time awoke, when, to my utter amazement, it still wanted twenty-seven minutes of six.. But, sare, I vill not go to de devil to oblige you! replied the Frenchman, waxing warmer.. Ingham! No! I never drink any wine at all--except sometimes in summer a little currant spirits--from our own currants, you know.. After a short pause, which corresponds to the overcoming of a resistance, she reports further that the day before she had made a visit to a friend, of whom she is really jealous, because her husband is always praising this woman so much...

Infant Joy


'I have no name;

I am but two days old.

What shall I call thee?

'I happy am,

Joy is my name.

Sweet joy befall thee!


Pretty Joy!

Sweet Joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:

Thou dost smile,

I sing the while,

Sweet joy befall thee!
