HISD acts in preventing violence

We should be proud of our city and what it has become in the past month. We are not only realizing that the best way to promote safety is to promote prevention, but we are acting upon this thought as well. This can be seen through the remarkable steps HISD is taking to prevent school violence. 

New scapegoat found for shooting

Just when we thought the world couldn't possibly handle more lawsuits, yet another gem. Parents of Columbine shooting victims, not content just to attack the media, video games, school officials, the sheriff's department and the shooters' parents, have now set their sights on a new target. This time, it's Solvay Pharmaceuticals Inc. -- makers of the drug Luvox. According to coroners' reports, Eric Harris, one of the Columbine gunmen, was taking the drug at the time of the shooting.
