I Am No One


Lots of creepy details about Cho Seung Hui in today's papers, but somehow this one particularly tingled my spine:

Charlotte Peterson, a former Virginia Tech student, said she shared a British literature class with Cho in 2005. On the first day, when the instructor asked students to write their names on a sheet of paper and hand it up, Cho wrote a question mark.

P.S. Cho seems to have had a fixation with pedophilia and child molestation. His psychotic plays, for instance (full text here), "are filled with diatribes against Catholic priests and Michael Jackson." I suspect that may be a key to understanding his demons.
