  •  That's an awful lot of speculation. (11+ / 0-)

    I'd rather admit as many possibilities as possible than settle too soon on a comfortable narrative.

    •  And yet you've settled with the confused and (0+ / 0-)

      frightened narrative.

      I bet mine is closer to the truth.

      We shall see.

      Have a good night.

        A child was found unhurt in the suspect's car, authorities said. After making an initial identification of the suspect, police are trying to confirm that the suspect is a 34-year-old woman from Stamford, Conn., with a history of mental health issues.

        Police said there were no weapons found in the suspect's car.

        It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      •  Actually, I've settled on no narrative at all, (9+ / 0-)

        and you may indeed be entirely right.  But we (well, I) will have to know a lot more first before deciding on anything.  Statistically speaking, more people panic in situations like this than are inclined to commit acts of terrorism, which is why I don't want to discount that possibility so quickly.

        This much said, now that it seems the woman was mentally unstable, your argument becomes, if anything, more difficult to maintain.  After all, was she "out to get someone" for the shutdown, or were there voices in her head telling her "go there!", or what?
