Apparently, Younk sent his girlfriend 35 text messages before the University of Northern Iowa lockdown Tuesday night, according to Black Hawk County court records. The documents didn’t spell out exactly what he said, but the jist was that he was intoxicated, just bought a gun and was going to come to Waterloo.

No one but Todd knows what was going through his head. But, anyway, that’s a lot of messages to send in a short time. It would probably make my mailbox shut down. And, you know, scare the bejeezus out of me.
