Was young Cho disturbed?
Dist-rub out your classmates, he figured. "I have taken life." He is a dramatic young man, he speaks like that. "I have ended their meaningless lives, but wait. Before I Die, I must make sure that I am Properly YouTubed. I will make several QUICKTIME files and mail them to NBC NEWS. There is an irony here, that as an English Major I APPRECIATE because they are in partnership with MICROSUCK and will have to convert them to .WMP to broadcast them on their INTERNET MEDIA PLAYER. They will never know the level of my EVIL!"

He wrote a script. Read it? It's great, but it's the one liners that get it going.

Pearls of Wisdom:
"You once worked for the government. As a janitor, at least."
"The Manner and Girth Frightens Her" (This is only a stage direction, but sometimes poetry comes in parentheses.)
"Sucks for you, you motherfucking McBeef."
"Eat this you giant tree-trunk piece of ass."

Sometimes geniuses need to mow down dozens of people with small caliber handguns and rifles just to get a write-up. We've all felt this pressure. The paradox of success, the visible breach of inevitable fame, if only the work could be tempered to the mass-market and the unbending genius of our own "Motherfucking McBeef".

Now he is heaven. It is right to give him thanks and praise.

Hold your breath, folks! Tops are turved! CNN told me that Cho was the most popular. I figured this was just revisionist history, but no, it was an unfortunate heading for the most watched video.

Is this a sick culture? Is it wrong to celebritize this young fellah? No. He is a martyr for his own fame. Instead of living in a fanciful world of art and craft, he happened upon significance and ran with it. Has a story ever made you cry? Or shot you point blank in the face? That's a wrecked, wre-wre-wrecked Virgina Tech.

So Hallelujahs all around. Another American down in the War on Obscurity. Cho is Dead, Long Live Cho.

Oh, like "hearing" a piece of your mind... blopping into something. Yes. Very.
