Senior Predictions
Dylan Klebold School Essay

Senior year began for Dylan Klebold with the knowledge that he and Eric Harris had already laid out the outlines of their Columbine attack for April, but not really planning to go through with it (based on what he was writing in his journal). He had to do a "senior predictions" essay for school, and it's staggering now to see the alternate vision of his life Dylan laid out.

 (It's also revealing to that Dylan didn't even bother to reprint the second page, after his printer fed it through badly. He was losing interest this fall, falling asleep in class, and several grades plunging.)

"Like Capote's In Cold Blood, this tour de force gets below the who and what of a horrifying incident to lay bare the devastating why."
