New details emerge regarding University of Alabama/Huntsville shooter Amy Bishop. From the Boston Herald:
Meanwhile, in an interview with the Chronicle of Higher Education, [Bishop’s husband James] Anderson said he was searching for the “trigger” to his wife’s breakdown, and that he wondered whether an e-mail message – potentially in the form of a final tenure denial – might have upset her, because university higher-ups were known to send “nastygrams” on Fridays.
A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children – the youngest a third-grade boy – was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting (emphasis added).
A characterization rarely seen in print these days. Normally such people are described as “moderate progressives.”
“Far-left political extremist obsessed with President Obama to the point of being off-putting” sounds more like a prerequisite for hosting a cable news show on MSNBC.
