Will you get your text message in time?

A student at Virginia Tech was stabbed to death last night, which prompted the venerable text message system to again show that electronic doo-dads are no substitute for an immediate form of self defense.
University spokesman Larry Hincker said the alert messages were sent out around 7:30 p.m., and it took about 15 minutes for all 40,000 messages to be sent.

My emphasis. I'd like to point out that it took Cho 20 minutes to shoot 60 people; 32 of them fatally.

Does Larry Hincker sound familiar? Yeah, that guy. Feeling safe does not mean that the person is actually safe Larry.
