As Chairman of the 'Keep Richardson Hip' Committee...

I was wikipedia-ing Richardson tonight, and WHOLLY GUACAMOLE! Who knew this???

"On January 8, 1991, Richardson High School student Jeremy Wade Delle fatally shot himself in front of his English class, an incident that inspired the Pearl Jam song "Jeremy."

That is so sad.

Here's the video:

  2. I was a few doors down but had some friends in the class at that moment. We heard a girl scream. Later, my English teacher volunteered to take the room over from the notably rattled teacher. Thus, we finished out the year in the "Jeremy" room.
