Four Days Ago

Just to get it out of the way – because i do feel it is in the way at the moment – for those who haven’t heard – Kimveer Gill, a hitherto unknown fellow from the north shore of Montreal, decided to attempt a spree killing in downtown Montreal last Wednesday. At a major Montreal cegep. One which is attended by someone very close to me, to say the least.

One of my kids.

Who, luckily, didn’t have classes at the time. But of course, other people’s kids were there…

Apart from Gill, there’s one dead so far, four in critical condition, and several more still in hospital.

What to say? Nothing, and everything, and nothing again.

I try to make this blog focus on patriarchy and how it intersects with capitalism, imperialism, and this slab of rotting meat we call a culture. So one might think that a young guy ending up so fucked up and isolated and unhinged that he ends up expressing his reality in a hail of bullets aimed at kids, killing a girl in the process, might be something worth talking about.

And i’m sure it is.

Later, perhaps…
