    El Guapo, We Need You

    Some nutcase is sitting on the main East Bay freeway (Interstate 80) right now with a high powered rifle. The freeway is stopped in both directions. Does this happen anywhere else?

    I'm sorry, but that is a mightly long shot to make: Midwest to I-80. Best get Quigley.



    Good luck. And BTW - if you are viewing the hollow end all rifles are high powered.

    Nope. It's Janeane Garofalo. And Billy Bob Thornton. Protesting American oppression in Haiti.

    Probably about 45 minutes away. We aren't that far from the state capital.

    Have no fear, the loony has apparantly been subdued. Although, his civil rights were violated because the agents of the overpowering State removed his weapons from his possession.

    Oops. The gunman was actually a photographer with a long range telephoto lens. Good reason to close the freeway during rush hour!

    Can you say unintelligent reactionaries?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.
