Thanks-well obviously they should have gotten another one if they could have. I saw on the news last night that one of his "protests" involved throwing thousands of dollars in cash in the air in front of the building. They showed video, people were running to grab the cash. I wonder where he got that money.

Well there's one less destructive human out there. Words cannot describe the irony of his actions.

But really, I'm glad everyone is okay.

Probably not the best time for humor, but the stuff he says on his website cracked me up.

It is amazing the things people will rant about when they get all paranoid/conspiracy theory on everyone.

Irvine, wow. That's one hell of a story, I can't imagine actually being close enough to that action. I'm so glad that everything turned out okay for all involved. Shaken up, though, I'm sure. And hat's off to the police and the Discovery people for handling the situation so professionally and calmly . Good job, guys.

Also, I didn't know that you worked for TLC for a living. That's pretty cool .

So in other words, he's your average FYM poster.

Of course then there would be a fight over the copyright between TLC and about 37 other network with their "reality" programs that capitalize on people with emotional/mental/physical problems. Makes me sick.

Might be better stated "In my opinion, they were hoping for mass death and carnage."

Come on, the media love mass death and destruction, absolutely love it. War violence, mass shootings, blood; they love it. There is nothing better for ratings than wars and people killing other people. Remember ZooTV and the theme of the dehumanisation of violence, well now it's even worse, ten times worse.

And you, and people like you, are the victims, Pac Mule, even if you haven't realised it yet.

In fairness, we all are. Not just you.

So how do ya like dem apples?

There is truth behind the old TV news adage: If it bleeds, it leads.

Sadly.

Is it true Tim McVeigh was your best friend, that you put him up to it and all?
