FOUR KILLED IN GUNFIRE AT U. OF ARIZONA: This AP report identifies the suspect, who took his own life, as “Robert S. Flores, a Gulf War veteran who was apparently flunking out of the nursing program. He apparently committed suicide after the attack, Police Chief Richard Miranda said.”

Reason recently had a short piece built around the notion that the psycho Gulf War vet is about to replace the psycho Vietnam vet as a stock Hollywood character. I’m beginning to think they’re right.

UPDATE: InstaPundit, back online after a half-day’s worth of server outages, makes some great points about why a campus such as U of AZ would be such a tempting target.
