Boritom: FTFA: FBI spokesman Jason Pack told CNN two people were injured in the incident. He said authorities have not determined there was an explosion but have confirmed a fire.

Aerial footage from the scene showed the white SUV with its hood blown up and its front end extensively damaged.

This is the kind of crap that blows the public credibility of organizations like the FBI and the CIA.

There has been an incident in the Klingon moon, Praxis.
No, a**hole, the moon farking EXPLODED!

Whoever it was, they put the dynamite under the passenger's side. But what they didn't know, what nobody outside the factory knew, was that that model car was made with a metal plate under the driver's seat. It's the only thing that saved my life.

Doris Davis, who works in an eye doctor's office next door, said Pierce's office staff is swamped trying to deal with patients who arrived for their appointments.

Thanks for this very important information. I was wondering how his office is handling all those appointments.

What's extremely critical condition? Do they have to hook you up to a car battery or have a waiting line of people ready to directly transfuse blood?

Its a good thing you're not an investigator of any sort. They're trained not to give any information that is speculative, only facts. The fire can be confirmed via visual evidence. To confirm an explosion takes a little longer.


Well if there is a piece here, and then 30 yards away another piece, and then another piece 20 feet away and...you get the picture, its pretty safe to say it wasn't an small electrical fire.

I can still remember when Columbia exploded, with the announcer saying 'there appears to have been a major malfunction'.

no, sorry. Major malfunction would be a booster going out, or the tail fin falling off. Columbia appeared to have exploded and vanished in a puff of smoke and even the untrained eye of a 14-year old could tell the effing difference.

FWIW, the announcer was looking at a screen of numbers that all went blank and said that before looking up at the TV screen.

Did the explosion have another explosion inside?
 
2009-02-04 02:23:29 PM  
It was a Hybrid. I don't think the doctor was the target. I think it was the car. I bet the oil barons were behind it.

I stayed in the Hampton Inn across from the dog track once many years ago. Maybe the doctor forgot to pay his bookie?

AuralArgument: moriarty23: "I wonder what his stance on abortion is?"

Same.

The other option is someone was coming up with a plot for a bad Lifetime movie featuring a beleaguered housewife and her asthma-stricken child, and the wife can no longer take it and goes ape on asthma doctors. Or something. I don't know.

I'm going to go away now.

Pierce was described as "a pillar of the community... well-liked, active in his church and is married""

Doesn't that ALWAYS turn out to be the alter-ego of a scammer/life destroyer?

El Farquistador: GOP to use this incident as proof that the Obama administration cannot prevent terrorist attacks in 3...2...1...

Unless of course this is connected to anti-abortion activists, because then this would not be a "terrorist act." Not according to Sarah Palin (new window) at least.

You're thinking of Challenger, right? I remember that phrase from the 1986 clip -- would be annoying if they used it twice.

Maybe it was his scorned gay lover and/or a meth deal gone bad?

A better question is why is Hybrid a part of the headline?

Not news. Somebody rigged a bomb to his car.
If Lexus' started randomly exploding, THAT would be news.
(and way cool, too.)

2009-02-04 02:31:54 PM  
What kind of BS is this. The bomb explodes and the doctor was injured. Damn, people just don't have any pride in their work anymore. In my day there wouldn't have been anything left but a crater, people would be knocked off their feet and at least a couple windows shattered. A job worth doing is worth doing right. With this level of incompetence, it sounds like Arkansas anti-choicers.

Hadn't even thought of the abortion angle.

My money's on a recently disciplined doctor. Someone losing their license, in this economy, they are gonna a little bit craaaaazy.

The audio from mission control/ cnn when the challenger exploded was like that. No one said "oh my god! holy shiat!" They just sit there saying "Looks like a couple of the solid rockets boosters blew away from the side of the shuttle in an explosion"

"obviously a major malfunction"

I'm pretty sure that's part of the meme. The one liners he has on the show are all terrible and predictable.
