I can't believe they stopped service nationwide because of this minor, commonplace incident. I was gonna take greyhound this Friday.
2001-10-03 11:48:56 AM  
The article said he was Croatian, so most probably he was white.
2001-10-03 11:49:25 AM  
since everyone liked the first copy-cat, here is 1 more.

BTW that was in reference to UFarks Arab=Muslim comment
2001-10-03 11:51:25 AM  
Phillyguy: This isn't that minor of an incident. This guy slashed the drivers throat. They are just being safe. They don't want to take any risks. I think it's a good idea, and I'm sure you will be able to take your buss on Friday.

Duh, trains... they can do real damage with those. All the switchyards are in the middle of major cities. I'd guess our 'intelligence' people got their eyes all over the trains.

<information type="useful">

CNN now says they're going to resume Greyhound service this afternoon.

2001-10-03 12:18:27 PM  
Cats rule. I heard that the latest theory about why they bring in half dead or dead animals is to try to train you - that's so cool. It's like they see humans as wayward kittens.

And apparently they purr because it massages their muscles on a sub-sonic level. That's so cool.
2001-10-03 12:21:33 PM  
I didn't know CNN offered bus service

Umm...heh...whoa...that's big. heh..ummm, yeah!
2001-10-03 12:33:01 PM  
Yes, I like cats too. They are neat.
The fact remains that the Occidental world is becomming a victim of widespread terrorism. I don't view this as "an accident" or a "coicidence" - Regardless of the religion or intent of the slasher. I regard it as a terrorist attack. Expect these to become more numerous before we start to fight.

2001-10-03 12:51:48 PM  
GLAD you asked, Genex! Xu for sale!
2001-10-03 12:54:47 PM  
sucks. im taking greyhound to NYC tonite.
2001-10-03 12:56:06 PM  
take a baseball bat zero... just in case

wtf is xu?
2001-10-03 12:58:42 PM  
Terrorists, 4 airliners, the WTC, the Pentagon and 6,000 people dead. Next attack (presuming ben Ladin) 1 guy, a Greyhound bus and 10 dead on an isoltaed road. If that's the best followup they can come up with, the US is relatively safe.

I can see where this is going...
2001-10-03 02:01:11 PM  
yesterday was mine
2001-10-03 02:15:07 PM  
OMG!!!! Dude, there are like 22 days since 9/11. and 22 is the number of digits osama bin laden has!!! This is a sign people, wake up!!!!!! THE FBI IS TRYING TO FOOL YOU ALL, and you are its puupets!

It is all so simple,[ take the number of minutes betwwen the attacks, multiply by the number of taliban leaders, mod by the members of osama's immediate family, turn to binary and switch to ebdic, and you will see that Carhenge is the next target, and will be blasted with toasted marshmallows on 10/33/2001 at 8:12 AM!!!!

IT IS SOOO OBVIOUS! I will print this out and cirdle it, THEN YOU WILL SEE!!!!
2001-10-03 02:15:23 PM  
So bushie, heres your prize for being a stupid son of a biatch asking the world to join you or die.

Enjoy your hate. you breeded it. assh0le.
2001-10-03 02:15:52 PM  
Meade2001, there were a lot of things that would get shut down b/c of relatively minor incidents now, that wouldn't have gotten shut down before.

Did no on else here of the idiot on the Cdn plane which had to stop at LA airport? He was smoking, and flipped out when he was asked to put it out. This happened yesterday, I think (or the day before).
2001-10-03 02:19:11 PM  
i had a birthday just a month and a day ago
2001-10-03 02:20:15 PM  
oh yeah, and i gave birth seven years ago monday (my baby's birthday) does that count?
2001-10-03 02:20:17 PM  
i didnt knew about this marquee shiat.

2001-10-03 02:21:52 PM  
Br0wni3 You are an asshole of the highest order. To blame this sort of thing on one man is idiotic. You need to get a grip, and realize the full scope of what is happening.
2001-10-03 02:23:08 PM  
See, Br0wni3 knows whats up. KEEP IT REAL MAN. Even your name is 1337, peeps here will know to ph34r your opinions. Bush caused a nut on a bus, shine teh light brotha!

2001-10-03 02:25:33 PM  


if you don't agree, jes cum on counterstrike an i wILl fRy yer aZz biAtCh!

Just testing.....

Nothing to say

2001-10-03 03:01:12 PM  
i don't think the past tense of "breed" is "breeded." i could be wrong.
2001-10-03 03:01:36 PM  
WhiteDragonso a terrorist attack ocurred on the U.S.; so a stupid son of a biatch thinks with his ass and figures out the best and more einstenian way of handling this is to use the nukes; so the same stupid asshole tells the world : join me or die.

Who's more stupid then? the terrorists, or the man that represents a whole country?

MojoMonkey its ironic how triying to make me look stupid just makes you look stupidier. Have you heard the phrase "pun intended" you big einstein you? Do you think i go walking around the streets with a "Hi im br0wni3. Ph34r me." shirt? Jeez. grow up, please.
2001-10-03 03:04:21 PM  
Meat so i missed the conjugation of an irregular verb. shiat. now im not graduating from harvard!

2001-10-03 03:04:38 PM  
Br0wni3 No one said anything about using nukes. And he never said join me or die... he said if you harbor terrorist you ARE a terrorist. And I agree with him, as does much of the US... and most of the world. You need to get your facts straight...
2001-10-03 03:11:40 PM  
WhiteDragon :
Im not a human scanner either, so excuse me for not using the exact words, letter by letter, your lovely president used. But i've done my homework, and i've been keeping track of this since day one.
Until today , all i've read are samples of just how small and square your president's mind is. I might be wrong, but i think i recall him saying something like : you are with us or you are against us.
Now, that isnt a very profound statement is it?

And, allow me to disagree, but i dont think an innocent afghan or taleban family that had nothing to do and who were living peacefully and happily until this, have the right to be called terrorists just because they happen to live there. Have you thought about your fellow americans living in afghanistan? are they terrorists too?
2001-10-03 03:15:53 PM  
I don't mean to bud in, but I don't think there are many Americans living in Afghanistan. Also, a lot of innocent Afghan families were not living happily because of the Taliban, who ruled through force and fear, so they'd be happy if we brought the Taliban down.
2001-10-03 03:17:36 PM  
Br0wni3 I have also done research into this... and I have ALSO been watching since day one... First: I don't expect you to understand... you don't even live in this country. Second:Either you ARE with us, or you ARE against us. This is not a new concept, it has always been that way.Third:Do you really think that the average Taliban family is happy? The Taliban is an imposed goverment... the people do not like them. Fourth: We are not going to attack the innocents of Afghanistan, we have specific targets located, and we will be destroying these. If some innocents lose their lives, sorry but it can't be prevented. Maybe they will finally get the balls to stand up to their oppressive government, and take charge again. So, again, I implore you... re-examine your facts.
2001-10-03 03:24:16 PM  
"Either you ARE with us, or you ARE against us. This is not a new concept, it has always been that way" Really? Ever hear of Switzerland? They've done a pretty good job of staying neutral. Just because someone doesn't support your point of view does not automatically make them supporters of your enemy.
2001-10-03 03:28:13 PM  
apparently the Swiss are receiving some heat over the whole shebang. (Regarding their sekrit bank accounts)
2001-10-03 03:29:32 PM  
"The man stabbed the driver, Garfield Sands of Marietta, Ga., and then took control of the steering wheel, the driver told Brandon. Brandon quoted Sands as saying the man appeared to be a foreigner, had a Middle Eastern accent and definitely intended to wreck the bus"
