Breaking?  
When the newsroom is full of activity, it's almost always bad news.

We have several TVs. They're usually off--after all, on a normal day the wire provides us with updates--but they get turned on for two things that I've seen before. Tragedies, and sporting events. I could probably write an entire essay just about that, but not now.

It's interesting that, for most of the day, the fax machine has been broken and its warning siren has been going off. At least the sirens I'm hearing aren't from ambulances carrying away the wounded.

I was actually chatting today over IM and trading emails with two friends of mine from down here who went to Virginia Tech (albeit several years ago), who were conveying their experiences while in absolute shock that something like this could happen at such a sleepy school. It was really freaky.
