Sadly, I have no substantial post for today.
My reason: Beta Overload. Thanks to a friend of mine I have a Starcraft II Beta key (legitimate). Thanks to my purchase of Halo ODST I also have access to the Halo Reach beta which starts today.
But, to throw out some commentary:
On a serious note, an SUV loaded with a assortment of explosives almost blew up in New York over the weekend. At this point, there seem to be no clear suspects. The main possibilities include 1) someone seeking revenge for South Park’s slight against Islam (the SUV was parked near the offices of the company that owns the show), 2) some random crazy, 3) a foreign terrorist, 4) a domestic terrorist, or even 5) someone who wants people to think that terrorists are active in the United States.
Based on what I have heard about the attempt, it seems to be a rather amateur bomb. Of course, this does not mean that it is not the result of real terrorists. After all, Al Qaeda has shown a serious loss in its operational competence when it comes to bombs (as per the underwear bomber).
