I've just had word via John Kessel, who in turn received the news from a coworker of Michael Bishop, that Mike Bishop's son Jamie was among the murder victims at Virginia Tech.
There is no news-service confirmation of this yet. It might not be true. Perhaps Jamie is only among the wounded, or not involved at all.
But at the moment, it does not look good for this wonderful young man.
Please give a prayer for Jamie and all the other victims, as well as for the entire Bishop family.
