Just after 12:00 a.m. on 1 August 1966, Whitman killed his mother, most likely by strangling her from behind with a rubber hose. He later bashed in the back of her head and hit her left hand so hard that the diamond from her engagement ring popped out. He left a note on the body.

A few minutes before 3:00 a.m., Whitman killed his wife, Kathy, as she slept by stabbing her five times in the chest with a hunting knife.

After writing a few more notes, Whitman placed the following items in a green footlocker:

In addition, Charlie packed/bought a .357 Magnum Smith & Wesson revolver, a Galesi-Brescia pistol, a .35 Remington, an sawed-off Sears 12-gauge shotgun, a 6mm Remington bolt-action rifle with a 4-power Leupold scope, and a .30 caliber M-1 Carbine. He also had over 700 rounds of ammunition.

On 1 August 1966, around 11:30 a.m., he entered the University of Texas Tower. Once in the elevator, he asked for help from an attendant, who informed him how to turn it on. "Thank you, ma’am," Whitman said. "You don’t know how happy that makes me."

Once on the 28th floor, he killed the receptionist by hitting her in the back of the head with the butt of his rifle. A couple coming down from the observation deck were mysteriously allowed to pass by Whitman unharmed.

Two other couples were shot at point blank range with the sawed-off shotgun as they climbed up the stairwell.

Whitman then went out onto the observation deck. The time was 11:48. It has often been pointed out that if he hadn’t been delayed by the receptionist, he would have started shooting during peak period of classes changing. The death toll would have been substantially higher. As it was, Whitman lasted for 96 minutes. He killed 16 people, wounded 30.

Houston McCoy, with the help of other officers, gained entrance to the observation deck and shot Whitman twice in the head with 12 gauge loaded with 00 buckshot. As Whitman’s body jerked in death spasms, Officer Ramiro Martinez took the shotgun and fired at Whitman’s upper arm, nearly blowing it off. The time was 1:24 p.m…

The world of smoking was changed forever with the introduction of the E Cig. It has been called nice things like “the next generation of smoking”. Manufacturers also claim it can help a person quit smoking, and still smoke.

The E Cig uses liquid nicotine cartridges and an electric vaporizer. A small battery inside the body of the E Cig heats a coil inside of it that turns the liquid nicotine into nicotine vapor. So smokers get the nicotine they crave, without all the harmful additions that came with smoking tobacco.

There are many obvious advantages to the E Cigarette.

Smoking tobacco can seriously damage the lungs and cause many other major health complications. The E Cig has no tobacco in it at all, so it doesn't contain the ingredients found in a traditional smoke that might harm or damage the lungs.

All that comes out of the E Cigarette is vapor that quickly disappears.

Many smokers find that smoking has become so habitual that they cannot function without a cigarette nearby. The E Cig can provide these people with a safer alternative than the pack a day habit that many smokers admit to.

As a smoking cessation device, the E Cig has many promising possibilities, as long as the person wants to quit, and can get the help they need.
