Berserk. Now There's A Word

Must have been the mushrooms. (see bottom) So where does Fort Hood leave all of us? Are we going to become increasingly racist against Muslims? Are we going to become paranoid? Imagine what it's like to be a Muslim in the military today! Did you know that U.S. army recruiters get a bigger commission for recruiting a Muslim? (can this be true?) What is going on? Backlash. That's the reality. Berserk. Now there's a word. (and no other word fits the shooter's actions yesterday) What is your perception?

BERSERK (SWEDEN) A.K.A. Major Nidal Malik Hasan or Dr. What A Waste

violently or destructively frenzied; wild; crazed; deranged: He suddenly went berserk.
(sometimes initial capital letter) Scandinavian Legend. Also, berserker. An ancient Norse warrior who fought with frenzied rage in battle, possibly induced by eating hallucinogenic mushrooms.

I don't know how suddenly he went berserk...but the guy went berserk...with a capital B.

My heart goes out to all the victims and their families.
