Here's the Jersey bomb. We used to call that Saturday night. We better get very tough, folks.

RE: New York Explosion
Looks like it's either the work of incompetents or people who are trying to raise fear without loss of life. I favour the former explanation at the moment.

The Chelsea explosion wounded 29, but only 1 seriously. The rest were "scrapes and bruises". It isn't hard to imagine that this could have been much more trajic had it been placed more strategically.

The pressure cooker bomb didn't go off. Either poor design or was never triggered.

The NJ pipe bomb managed to mangle a garbage can, no injuries. The design is also very different from the other devices, suggesting that it is a different maker.

Three bombs netting one serious injury speaks either to incompetence or a desire to minimize loss of life while producing fear. Never misunderestimate human stupidity, so I'll take incompetence for 10.

The real concern right now is how many more devices might be out there. Here's hoping they catch these lunatics before they figure out how to make an effective bomb.

All those cameras... The Boston Marathon bombers got pinched via camera "footage" from around the location.

Good thing they weren't wearing burqas. Consider

Ima bet that if pics do turn up that identify the perps, that they won't have burquas on, either.

Of course not - if they can be identified from photos they couldn't have been wearing burqas. Facepalm

Somebody blew up a trashcan - and it makes national news................


Go figure....

When I was in High School - toilets got blown up on a pretty regular basis -- and that didn't even make the local news..........................

It's amazing what a decade of fear mongering will do.
