Yet Another Radio Bonehead: Neal Boortz

With all the horror coming out of Blacksburg this week, you'd think that the last thing a radio talker would do would be to blame the victims.

But you'd be wrong: Neal Boortz did exactly that.

We happened to be listening this week when Tulsa's own KRMG broadcast the Boortz rant, where he complained bitterly that none of the Virginia Tech students under attack were brave enough to stop the gunman. The students, Boortz claimed, were wusses.

Well, no. Boortz was nowhere near the scene, of course, and had no way of assessing the circumstances the students were facing, or thought they were facing.

But Boortz did have the advantage of 20/20 hindsight. Leave it to Boortz: Student wusses are to blame for letting the gunman keep on killing.
