    •  It matters. I jumped to right conclusion in '95 (3+ / 0-)

      My boss  was a New York pol with designs on the Governor's mansion. I saw the first reports of the blast in Oklahoma City and mentioned it. My boss said something about the "Towelheads". I replied that I didn't think the Towelheads know where Okla City is...that I would be surprised if it was Arab terrorism. I remembered the story on NPR earlier in the morning about the Waco anniversary. I made the predictive leap right then and there, because 2 + 2 = 4.

      18 year later -- still....2+2=4.

      •  I do not think this bombing is foreign in nature (0+ / 0-)

        either, it was Patriot's day in Boston, a good place to start the second American revolution.  Just conjecture but few foreigners would actually be aware of that fact.
