This looks real close to home for a certain Arachnid SuperHero.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Don't believe the news reports, it was really me who picked him up and handed him to authorities. [Wink]

Seriously though, I was at that mall just earlier this week. [Eek!]

It's also comforting to know that if he was from Rockford, he likely wouldn't have succeeded in his plot even if he had gotten his hands on the grenades and gun. I hate to sound like a snobbish asshole, but people from here just aren't that capable. [Razz]

(Thank God I'm from Chicago) [evil]

I look SO forward to moving out of this town.

Since when do hand grenades and a hand gun constitute weapons of mass destruction? [Confused]

Unless...the grenades become biological weapons when used to spread the bacteria in the garbage bins.

Now, AJ, think about the perspective of the current government(s) in this US of A.

As evidence of the depth and breadth of the problem, I offer the following link, gleaned from Rockford's newpaper. The incident took place in a tiny cafe about 20 miles East of Rockford and was witnessed by an old friend from High School days. His version was much more colorful, but as you read the article, try to envision the scene taking place in a town of under 400 people.... Four Q.
