Letter about Waseca High School...

To the Editor,

We share in the relief parents and friends of students at Waseca High School feel, who are now sitting around their dinner tables with their children instead of standing over a hospital bed or worse, attending a funeral.

What almost occurred in Waseca sends again the message: school killings must end! As parents, we say to your readers there is knowledge that can end these tragedies and answer the question being asked over and over: HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?

Aesthetic Realism, the education founded by Eli Siegel, explains why John David LaDue was driven to amass an arsenal of guns and bombs with the intent to annihilate his family and fellow classmates: it is contempt, the feeling in people that says, “if I can make less of this and this and this, my glory is greater.”
