if obviously Ill.
On that point, this guy -whoever he is- picked a really bad day to go crazy. With the Dorner chase in its final firefight stage, no one who's not on the Illin' State campus is going to pay this gunman the slightest bit of attention.

my husband teaches chemistry to pre-med and engineering students. I have seen how angry they get when they think their "careers" have been ruined by a bad grade. I mean it when I say I will make him move if they allow them on campus here. If they allow it everywhere, he has to go to industry, I will not be fearful everyday he goes to work. He is a teacher, not a cop.
