Sounds drastic, yet it is a new school drill that has taken shape in schools across America. Columbine wasn't the first school shooting, but was by far the most extensive and is still the most well known. Columbine started a trend full of teen angst. Adolescents that feel as if they are outsiders decided to get even, and schools have been ridden with terror since.
Everyone has done something that they regret. Whether it be a bad decision, a wrong turn or harsh words, most people can find something in his or her past that they would redo.

Directed by: James McTeigue By KEVIN CARR I have to admit that I was pretty excited to see "V for Vendetta." The trailers made it look awesome. I mean really, really awesome. But there were some things that worried me. First, it was an early spring release instead of a summer or winter release. Supposedly this was to distance itself from recent terrorist attacks, but I think there was more to it.
