We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

The award goes to Blacksburg’s Holiday Inn. At the hotel chain’s counter, they have a flyer listing events for the week. After the massacre on Monday, someone reprinted the flyer so that it now includes a special nod to the students. It goes like this: On Sunday, April 15, there’s a prime rib special. On Monday, April 16, the Holiday Inn’s Prayers are With You, Virginia Tech. And on Tuesday, April 17, there’s a battle of the bands happening somewhere.

The flyer either makes Holiday Inn look like it new about about the shootings beforehand or they think there’s nothing like a little battle of the bands after a shooting spree. You decide!
