My sister teaches math at Lone Star College, the community college in Houston that's been in the news the last day or so for a shooting. The shooting was at her main campus, but luckily she happened to be at another campus when it occurred. Her husband teaches math at the high school across the street from this campus, and they went into lockdown.
Everyone in my family is okay.
But this situation is not okay.
I don't generally make political statements here because this is not that kind of blog. And I'm not feeling coherent enough right now to make a statement I'll have to stand by later.
But I just want to say this: this is not okay.
