The person accused of being behind the threat is 41-year-old Carlos Balsas, a former professor at Arizona State University.

The guy seems like a real lightweight.

Security won't let you lick the Liberty Bell. I tried.

Blow up the Liberty Bell? Who is he working for, Cobra?

Wanted for questioning.

I saw it last summer. I was surprised that it wasn't behind bulletproof glass or anything - just kinda out in the open in this pavilion thing.

Security is so tight, you go through the scanner, then you go outside back with the general public and cross the high traffic street. Plus the security company is British. Where's the irony in that? They were chosen by the Philadelphia Dental Association.

But Philadelphia style, the security only speaks English at an attraction that is a magnet for foreign tourists.

Oh, yes, the Liberty Bell. America's paean to...shoddy workmanship...umm...or perhaps it's to the poor use of resources during a crisis. We should have given the Brits the Liberty Bell back, in bullets.

FTA: ' "So he's definitely very strange, doesn't know how to interact with people or how to go about dealing with things in a normal way," said Darling.'

Typical professional academic, I'd say. WIthout the carapace of the institution they're dysfunctional worms, like the rest of us.

This sounds like the general premise behind a Paul Auster novel, Leviathan maybe... it's been a while.

It not our fault that the bell cracked marking the end of liberty and doom now is it?

While it's not the most clear indication in the photo that the gentleman pictured is an idiot, I can't stand it when "English speakers" use "quotations" for "emphasis."

Sounds like the plot of an episode of the Six Million Dollar Man.

What would happen to someone ordering in Cherokee or Apache?

I had mine from a street cart. Is that acceptable?

/guess this is now a cheesesteak thread

ohh those peace loving liberals.

An ASU spokesperson confirms Balsas was employed there from 2004 to 2011, but would not comment further.

Sounds like somebody lost it after they didn't get tenure.

I'll allow it. I survived off a cart through college. The food ain't too bad if you find a good one.

Certainly there are little places that do the cheesesteak better, but being that I don't get up to Philly very often, when I
want a fix its usually quicker to go to Pat's since, for me, its a known quantity.

I thought he was just exercising his right to bear arms.
