I don't man. I'm pretty sure my kids' principal would have hid under his desk.
Possibly. Then again, it's also possible (as this entire incident has shown) that some men will actively seek out and slaughter children outright. The lesson? Flukes happen.

Overall, however, we have an evolutionary drive to protect our young. This means anyone from our own kid to a child we see who's about to bolt across a busy street. I'm not saying people are wonderful - far from it - but as a whole, it's in our genes to protect the offspring within our group. It's only that our "group" is a bit bigger these days.

You're right. People seek patterns. I'm as guilty of it as anyone.

I haven't heard that one yet but a lot of fundies are saying that its due to the removal of prayer from public school.
