I just received the following article from SAJA. What a sad day for Prof. Loganathan, his family and all the students and their friends and families as well. This horrific school massacre is the worse in US history.

G.V. Loganathan, a 51-year-old Civil and Environmental Engineering professor from India is among the 33 victims in the biggest U.S. massacre - the killings at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007.
