Another story

I've got no interest in covering murder stories. A morbid fascination does not stir within me. But I came across something interesting, and I want to share it.

The primary story is the nasty mass murder out in Seattle. Several dead, including the gunman.

The interesting part is how bloggers step in. Huff's Crime Blog is providing information from MySpace and other internet sources written by the victims, their friends, and their acquaintances. One victim, age 22, wrote that his "worst fear" was "dying young." It is the discussion at the virtual coffee shop. This level of detail would be learned only if we were there and involved in their lives. The internet is changing so many things.
