    happened, back in the middle of the Olympics.

    And then the same bastard nearly killed one of my favorite local radio personalities while the law enforcement community was still trying to pin the blame on the security guard who tried to get people away from the bomb.

    Even just one small device from one homegrown crackpot working from photocopied (or scanned and downloaded, these days) plans is terrorism, so long as the intent was to create terror.

    Lone wolf terrorism is terrorism. Homegrown terrorism is terrorism. Its all wrong and bad and just different degrees of the same nasty awful thing and the things running through your heads are not invalidated because it was just small devices that may have been made by one man working alone. And that's coming from someone who was there in that 'in my town? this happened here?' mental space as a middle schooler not having had a concept of terrorism until the morning the radio was nothing but news of street closures.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
