    I thought Boston was going to me right wingers because of the date (they almost always go most extreme this week in April), and because no one claimed responsibility right away (Erick Rudolf and Tim McVeigh's m.o.) and because of the reason stated by the diarist: They've been ramping up the violent rhetoric.

      The guy who burned the great ancient Library of Alexandria reportedly said he did it just to make a name for himself and be remembered. I'm guessing there were some deaths involved, but that wasn't memorable. And he didnt care about the content of the books, either, what ideas they might contain. It was done simply to become famous by an act of personal will, that's all.
      Publicity, fame, becoming "somebody".
