Wasn't the Waco Cult thing on April 20th?


I think the Waco thing was at the end of Feb and the Oklahoma City bombing and Columbine were both around this date.


Started in Feb, ended on April 19th...

Oh that's right, it started in Feb. Thanks. Don't know why I thought that's when it ended.

What is crazier to think about, that one picture of that 12 year old North Korean leader had an arrow pointing to that general area. All this **** is way too deep to think about.

Perhaps we should be worrying less about Middle Eastern nutjobs and worrying more about homegrown nutjobs.

To clarify, since I haven't been glued to the TV on this one... Is there any evidence to suggest this wasn't an accident?

Nope, unless someone started the fire intentionally and even now I don't know if they could even determine that since all evidence would be obliterated.

That's one of the biggest explosions I've ever seen short of nuke footage. Incredible.

The actual raid that resulted in the mass deaths was April 19th. McVeigh chose the two-year anniversary of that to bomb the Murrah building in OKC.

Visit a participating Chick-fil-A restaurant on April 15 and hold on to your receipt. With the "Tax Relief Day Special" you can receive the same order for free before April 30. (AP Photo/Dima Gavrysh)
