Last weekend just a few hundred feet from the packed OU stadium, a student, blew himself up on a park bench. They are saying that it was just a lone suicide but news media has gone nuts with this story and speculations have flown in every direction. They actually found out 'afterwards' that he tried to buy amonium nitrate at a local hardware store. It just strikes me kinda funny that if you want to kill yourself, why go to these extremes, and why on a park bench so close to 80,000 college football fans. What scares me even more is that there was not a thing on the national news, I think there is a little downplaying going on here. There have been interviews with this kids father, and even his father knew he was in trouble. Makes you wonder about the kid standing next to you. The local police and FBI handled the situation very well though, and the investigation is still going on.

We could probably use a little more of that actually "In the news today some guy killed himself, we don't care why or who for... Next, the weather" Would make their cause a little more difficult if attention or instilling fear is what they want.

Apparently, the nationals were the only ones with any common sense then. I guess in Okieland, they chose to use the old adage "On a slow news day, why let facts get in the way . . . " And all this crap about this being an indicator of more violence - show me a suicide that is a repeat offender, and I will truly be impressed.
