THE CLOVEN-HOOFED ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM. Count on Fox News to ask the tough questions:

Was Cho Seung-Hui schizophrenic � psychotic � manic-depressive? Or were the shooting deaths of 32 people, including Cho himself, at Virginia Tech University part of the ongoing struggle between God and Satan � good against evil � lightness and darkness?

Could Cho have been possessed by the Devil? Could that explain the massacre at Virginia Tech?

Dr. Richard Roberts, president of Oral Roberts University, shouts an unequivocal �Yes!�

�Based on what I�ve seen in the news," Roberts said in an interview, "there�s no doubt that this act was Satanic in origin."

Well that explains it. Meanwhile, there are some people out there even more despicable than the Derb. Neal Boortz, whose syndicated radio show is heard on hundreds of stations, said on Tuesday, �How the hell do 25 students allow themselves to be lined up against the wall in a classroom and picked off one by one? How does that happen, when they could have rushed the gunman, the shooter, and most of them would have survived?" You�ll notice here that Boortz is simply making things up to support his attack on the murdered victims at Virginia Tech. We know that no one was �lined up against the wall,� because there were survivors from every classroom who have told the media what happened. He simply burst into the room and started shooting. But sticking to, and stay with me here -- the facts -- would make it harder to vilify these young people whose families and friends are currently suffering the depths of a grief I have a feeling Neal Boortz has never known.
