Person who pissed you off:  No
You:  Good

Smart move adding the US embassy to your list of letter bomb targets.  Before that everything was Spain's plus the one at Ukraine's embassy.  I assume once you involve the US embassy, you get escalated in terms of investigation because the US now has a "personal" interest and will add their intelligence resources to the search.

It still says this on the drop-down summary on mobile, so some of us who DRTFA will never notice.

So is it Russian intelligence or someone being influenced by Russian intelligence?

The only one that exploded was at the Ukrainian embassy.  Did anyone check to see whether the other ones were even armed?

CSB: The yerba mate tea straw is called a bomba in Brazil.  My grandma was coming into the US and the Miami customs folks asked what that was and she told them.  They pulled out the machine guns on her and my 10 y/o cousin and asked for further explanation.

Ok I can see sending bombs to most of those places. But Ukraine? Must be a Pooty fanboy.

In other news, police warn that the sudoku killer will kill either 1, 4, or 9 victims next.

While she does look sorta like a couple of my cousins on that side, I'm pretty sure my grandma never looked like that.
