Thanks to Spike from Bedazzled for sending me an invitation to try blogads.
I’m off to Long Island for the weekend to attend a wedding so there won’t be many updates until Sunday.
From the Houston Chronicle:
AUSTIN â€” A package left at a women’s clinic that performs abortions contained an explosive device capable of inflicting serious injury or death, investigators said today.
“It was in fact an explosive device,” said David Carter, assistant chief of the Austin Police Department. “It was configured in such a way to cause serious bodily injury or death.”
The package was found Wednesday in a parking lot outside the Austin Women’s Health Center, south of downtown Austin.
Nearby Interstate 35 was briefly closed, and a nearby apartment complex was evacuated while a bomb squad detonated the device.
Thanks to Bill for sending in pictures of Loretta:
Here are a couple of pictures of Loretta. She just showed up one
evening, and has taken over the place.
Told to express emotion for a creative-writing class, high school senior Allen Lee penned an essay so disturbing to his teacher, school administrators and police that he was charged with disorderly conduct, officials said Wednesday.
Lee, 18, a straight-A student at Cary-Grove High School, was arrested Tuesday near his home and charged with the misdemeanor for an essay police described as violently disturbing but not directed toward any specific person or location.
Neither police nor the school would release a copy of the essay written Monday. School officials declined to say whether Lee had any previous disciplinary problems, but said he was an excellent student. Authorities said Lee had never been in trouble with the police.
The charge against Lee comes as schools in the Chicago area and across the country wrestle with how to react in the wake of the massacre at Virginia Tech.
