Bomb Scare

The Feds arrested Gale Nettles, 66, in a sting operation today. Apparently, this guy was trying to arrange for a truck loaded with fertilizer to do a repeat of the Oklahoma City explosion, but this time in Chicago. The target was the Dirksen Federal building, which contains courtrooms and judges' offices.

Whew. Glad he's off the streets.

Rhyme of the day:

I offer thanks to every cop
Who helped to stop
This guy.
I'll die
Another day
Some other way.
