Dylan Klebold

What's in a name? When Tom and Susan Klebold named their son after Welsh bard Dylan Thomas they were probably hoping that in some vague way his soul would be filled with poetry. I'm pretty sure the highly intelligent couple weren't hoping that their offspring would turn into a self-destructive pisshead who would drink himself to death in a New York bar. Unfortunately for the Klebolds an even worse fate would befall their son. On Tuesday, April 20, 1999, Dylan - along with his best friend Eric Harris - armed themselves to the teeth and massacred 13 people at Columbine High School. They then killed themselves.
