Remember back in the good old days before Malvo? You know, when the comics all used to say in their black vs white routines that only whitefolks had mass murderers? Yeah well. And remember when they used to say there were no black terrorists and then we had Seas of David, the crackheads who figured they'd blow up the Sears Tower for al Qaeda? I seem to recall that some people said that the FBI was infiltrating a bunch of innocent black muslims who were not really capable of doing any real harm. I wonder if any of those folks are saying the same thing about the knuckledraggers who just got busted for their fantasy of taking out several dozen blackfolks including That One.
We've got some sick and twisted cretins over here, but you know the good guys tend to win. I still can't really watch a Virginia Tech football game without thinking what those folks went through. Every time I think about LSU football, I think how they rallied in the post-Katrina morass. I swear to God I still think of that nutcase in the UT bell tower just as often as not when I hear 'Hook 'em horns'. I don't know why I have these strange associations with death on college campuses - maybe I'll invent a good reason now. The colleges come back. Their spirit returns. I know that we have some morbid political goofs who won't let the soul of Bunchy Carter rest, and so every once in a while (OK more often than not) Lefties make a point in mentioning it whenever they have their 'America has so far to go' speeches at UCLA. But most of the time, kids on campus get on with the ambitious and happy business of filling their heads with knowledge in search of brighter horizons. And so it goes.
I think these particular dregs didn't really have much of a chance to carry out their evil loser plot, and we're indebted to the locals and feds who are generally on their game, as they were this time.
