for Amy, as always, and for Jamie Bishop

I knew Jamie Bishop, but I didn’t really know him. I knew his face, and it shocked me to see it on the front of the New York Times. We overlapped at UNC–he worked in the IT office downstairs in Dey Hall (Die Hole, we used to call it). From what I knew about him, he was a person who was nice, quiet, was into photography, was concerned about the direction our country was headed. A guy like me.

I am saddened to find out that his life was taken at VA Tech. I am thinking about Jamie, about his wife Steffi (I remember her well, she was very kind to me when she gave me a German exam, it hurts to know that she must suffer), about Northern Virginia, where I grew up, about how my culture produces ugliness and beauty, rotten eggs and peanuts.
