As an out of town Gaucho deeply hurt by these events, I appreciate that I've been able to get a variety of media updates. One could imagine that if the media just "left," there would also be outcry that IV were "already forgotten."

My first Halloween on DP ('86) was bad enough to be my last: nothing but groping.

But BORSODI'S and dancing to HAPPY TRAILS: that, I miss.

I had never heard of Shallow Water Blackout. As a "swim team parent" I appreciate the detailed description of what can happen. I offer my condolences to the Johnson family.

As one who has also delved into SB's Japanese American history, I appreciate your eloquent integration of personal history and community life. The Nisei generation never ceases to inspire.

As a teacher who just attended a (tedious) training on school lockdown and other "it won't happen to us" scenarios, I was surprised by how close to home this lockdown hit. The presence of SWAT and other emergency responders, together with the earlier post by a San Marcos HS student saying that she felt very safe during the process, convinces me that emergency plans--tedious though they may be--can truly make a difference and are perhaps most successful when, in the end, people think it was "much ado about nothing." I wasn't there, and imagine it was tough for faculty, students, staff and admin, but it sounds to me like the lockdown plan protected the students. That's ultimately what matters.
