Hang tough danie. No shopping though.

And I need to make a trip to Home Depot as we are finishing the twins' room--making the transition from "baby" room to "litttle boys" room.

Nah I live out in Gainesville. I had a meeting downtown last night though and was through on 66 by about 8:30. If I would have gone out for a beer I would have been stopped in the roadblocks.

George, Danie, and all the DC area folk -

This last shooting was the first one in an area I was intimately familiar with. I guess it's just human nature, but it freaks me out a bit more now that I see what it must have been like in my head. It's due in no small part to the fact that my wife Kristin and I used to shop at that Home Depot all the time when we were in Arlington, and I can't get the mental picture of that poor guy seeing his wife killed out of my mind, and what it would be like if Kristin were in her place - the most horrible thing I can imagine someone going through.

You guys - you and yours - take care, be extra careful. We're thinking about you guys and all our friends down there right now.

Liar

I can't believe the son of a ***** that gave a false witness story for his "15 minutes of fame" when he was actually INSIDE the Home Depot. Thanks for helping the guy get away, jerk off. I hope the police press charges against this loser. He needs to be sentenced to pumping gas at random gas stations along the interstate. . .

Sigh

i just paid .05 cents more a gallon to get gas at a more urban station where traffic is always backed up so he could not get away if he whacked me.

there i was hideing behind the pumps, ducking in and out of my car like a crazy woman

this is not fun, its not even scary right now-it just SUCKS

hes not been this quite during the week before-maybe he offed himself in a corn field some where

That does look, umm.....interesting, yeah interesting.

It never happens to real people. Only Basketball players get that lucky (refering to the hot tub, not sniper victims).

They got drugs that cure things now. What does not kill me makes me stronger is my take on the issue.

Frank is not a closer, as proven by his inability to close the deal with Trishelle. As such, he must mock and comment negatively to hide his insecurities.

In addition to not being a closer, Frank is also a loser. If you can't close the deal with even Trishelle......

Christ I'm addicted to that show this season!

No word on the asailant.

The 'honk honk' involved a Packer Game, pre, during- and post-game dubious quantities of fermented malt beverages, yours truly, and a rather comely woman with full D-cups on the club's dance floor. Piece the rest together...

I was an 11 on the intoxication scale last weekend. I walked out of the bathroom into an altercation. It was not my fight, I was just in the middle of it. I was blindsided by what I presume to be a bottle. 26 stitches around my eye and cheek. Never fell over, BTW. Just exclaimed, "What the f*** was that about!!!" ANd walk to the hospital.

Prudence has not had a drink in 8 days, and will not go to a bar for a while...just to be safe. Stitches are out. No scars will result from the incident. A big thank you to the doctor for his needlepoint skills, though.

As for the HONK, HONK...

PlannerGirl - WTF? This is OUR fault now? I don't think so. We may have trained the killer, but he's the one that turned. Nothing for "Ashcroft (???)" to "admit."

Still and all, hope these are the guys.

No i think the military does a poor job of...reintergrating men back into society after making them into hunters.

my ex and all his friends (snipers and seals) were all screwy in the gorde. there has got to be a way to...rehabilitate? them back into normal life.

but this guy was screwy long before the military got a hold of him i tend to think.

im not saying ALL are screwed up but in my *limited* knowlage things were pretty warped. not that they were all going to be serial killers but domestic violence, drugs and abusive drinking did seem to be higher than others.

Look at Ft Bragg this summer-something was surely wrong there

Im just glad it seems to be over. now we can go back to fearing dirty bombs and such in the mero.

I think alot of that domestic violence by military personnel has alot to do with drinking, and nothing to do with what is taught in the military. If your ex or his friends were bringing their "training" home with them, then they were just f**'d up anyway, or simply trying to "show off" (alot of that happens).

Sometimes I think we should just let the military guys smoke pot on the weekends. Because thye can't do any drugs, alot of them make up for it by drinking heavily. I saw this repeatedly throughout my 6 years in. The heavy drinking lead to arrests, fights, accidents, etc.

I apoligize the story is now that the man has not gotten any sniper like training.

Mike, your right-these guys do need some way to let off pressure.

Careful, today I think there are something like 1.2 million ACTIVE duty military. Over the past 60 years millions of men and women have passed through that honored role. Those I know are a different breed in general, but for the postive, disciplined, loyal, more well adjusted than the average.

Blaming the the best damned fighting force in human history is way out of line.

What does John Ashcroft have to do with this?

These bastards they caught will turn out to hate America. Too bad they didn't catch them in Virginia.

Why? There will likely be several trials each each state regardless. They will also probably not charge them will ALL the possible counts - that way if a jury throws them out or there is a mistrial, they can start a second trial on the remianing counts without facing 'double jeopardy'.

I think perhaps what i have been saying is coming out wrong. Im very pro military, family is military as far back as we can find. Even though i dont think Bush is doing the right thing when and if he sends us to war with Iraq but ill still suppor the troops.

They are FANTASTIC men and women, they are not paid enough to endure the hell they endure, the retired members (like my dad) keep loosing more and more of what they were promised etc. I think we should be doing more to help them thats the sum total of what im saying-i guess poorly today.

ill go sit in my corner now.

Bturk, I guess you are right, I just don't know how they will handle the extradition issues state to state. Or the trials. If in fact these guys are linked in any way to a terrorist group, Federal Courts might be nice.

I was only saying Virginia because of the Death Penatly provisions.

This is good news. The wife is due to go to DC in a few weeks.

We won't technically know that until they get their [edited because it was wrong upon refelction] exams by the local Police who's wives and mothers were scared to death. Not that I am advocating a violation of their rights. No, I would never suggest they might gain undue attention from their jailers. No, that would be wrong.

That quote makes it sound as if the military is tjhe equivalent of prison. It's assumed that military personnel are psychologically stable -- they have to be to get in -- and that no "reintegration" into civilian society is necessary.

In my experience, I find that military personnel who have just reentered civilian life are excessively polite, especially former Marines.

As far as the military personnel as "hunters," remember that military offensive actions invovle troops, units, platoons ... that's groups of men and women. Hunters, even when out with their pals, usually act alone. Hunting also implies defenseless prey; military movements always assume a very well trained, armed and supplied defense is awaiting their actions.

I should talk, though ... no military experience under my belt. College boy here.
