A bit shocked at the next story. Now I was never into Pantera but have heard them and certainly know who they were. Apparently a gunman jumped on stage at a gig last night in Columbus just after dameplan, which features two former members of Pantera, and shot at the band and then into the crowd. A nearby policemen was quickly on the scene and killed the shooter. Among the four people who where killed at the gig at least one is believed to be a member of the band iteself.

According to CNN it was Dimebag that was shot.

In Columbus, Ohio, no less. I've been to Columbus for Origins and GAMA-related business many times and it's always had a sweet small-town Midwest feel to it.

Chris and I were speculating that the band guy probably screwed the killer's girlfriend or something, as it seemed to be targeted at him in particular.

Americans are just odd, it's a land of individualists and fanatics, and groupies. The under-insured mentally ill are a tradgic and dangerous group and then they give them guns.

The ny times report on the shootings:

Can't find your e-mail address...

How does either lunch or dinner tomorrow sound?

I'll call in the morning. The choice depends on whether someone else can make lunch or dinner...(my oother slot will then be open...)

E-mail me, and if you could, send the shop's number...

Mail you in a minute. It'd be good to catch up but I'll only be able to do lunch tomorrow as I'm out tomorrow night and will be rushing home after work to get ready to boogie... sorry :-(
