I find myself fascinated with this story. The way he thinks of himself, I wonder how he pulled the wool over the eyes of people around him. For example, this journal entry:

"I was desperate to have the life I know I deserve; a life of being wanted by attractive girls, a life of sex and love. Other men are able to have such a life ... so why not me? I deserve it! I am magnificent, no matter how much the world treated me otherwise. I am destined for great things."

OMG. I was reading some of his journal entries on CNN this morning. I can't believe he could go his whole life with those kind of thoughts and no one noticed anything odd. What a terrible and scary thought that people are like that.

Whenever somebody like Rodger makes the headlines, I wonder how much longer we will tolerate the gunhuggers and their systematic dismantling of reasonable restrictions on firearms.
