    Don't forget that 4/20 when I got super-stoned and whacked my shin on the coffee table. I should've gone for stitches.

    I guess there's already that Saudi national in custody but have to say, having been at the boston marathon the day waco happened, the bombing it immediately made me think back to how McVeigh's OKC bombing was somewhat related to/retaliation for govt's intrusion.

    I guess it matters little in the end what the motive is, surprised we've been lucky enough to avoid one on domestic soil this long.

    April 5, 1986 - A bomb exploded at a popular discotheque frequented by American military personnel in West Berlin, killing two U.S. soldiers and a Turkish woman. American intelligence analysts attributed the attack to Muammar Qaddafi of Libya. Nine days later, President Ronald Reagan ordered a retaliatory air strike against Libya.

    April 7, 1712 - In New York City, 27 black slaves rebelled, shooting nine whites as they attempted to put out a fire started by the slaves. The state militia was called out to capture the rebels. Twenty one of the slaves were executed and six committed suicide.

    April 15, 1912 - In the icy waters off Newfoundland, the luxury liner Titanic with 2,224 persons on board sank at 2:27 a.m. after striking an iceberg just before midnight. Over 1,500 persons drowned while 700 were rescued by the liner Carpathia which arrived about two hours after Titanic went down.

    Maybe next year we should miss April and go straight to May, it would have the added benefit of getting to summer quicker.
