    Liviu Librescu

    Virginia Tech mechanical engineering professor Liviu Librescu survived Hitler's camps and Ceausescu's dictatorship (he had to flee Romania when he refused to swear allegiance to its communist dictator), only to be gunned down by Cho.

    That is so fucked up.

    He is reported to have barricaded the door to allow his students the extra seconds to jump out the window. Cho killed him in the doorway.

    If he had died in the camps, or had been purged, he wouldn't have been there on Monday to give his life there instead.

    A man who had faced certain death before, who could have been snuffed out ruthlessly and efficiently as a young man, finally dies by a ruthless and efficient act all the same.

    A better story than Richard McBeef or Mr. Brownstone.

    There were several stories of teachers who helped students out before themselves and it makes me happy to have teachers in my family - perhaps they will finally be elevated to the status of the fire/police from 9/11 and recognized as the everyday heroes that they are.
