Can't wait to hear the diatribes of wisdom he's written down for us, or videoed, and otherwise left behind so we can all better understand his insightful purpose. (insert heavy sarcasm here)

Hey coward, unlike your victims, you will be forgotten quicker than that piece of shrapnel that tore through your empty brain cavity.

But, But, But - What about the cardboard boxes...

Can't we at least agree that there should be some common-sense rules/laws/regulations put in place to protect us from the assault-boxes used in these crimes?

Can we address the chronic underfunding of mental health services to keep these sickos from so easily accessing boxes...

And, what about the delivery Services - they have a lobbying group, they're just like the NRA...

Lets organize folks for a national walkout of schools and business to get the attention this needs.

NO ONE needs high-capacity boxes!

Cameras. More people with fingerprints and data being vacuumed up. More paranoia. It was easier to ship packages back then, too.

UNABOMB sent 16 devices over 16 years; he sent 12 of those in about 8.5 years. He was more patient, and willing to spread his terror out. This goblin was in a hurry, and got cocky. If he'd been as patient as UNABOMB, he'd probably still be alive today.

The Unabomber also had an IQ of 168. I doubt this turd was operating at the genius level.

Sadly, now we are going to see the media explode with the blame game and what side of the fence he fell on political issues. I am sure there are news media researchers scouring the web for political manifestos and other indicators to exploit their own agenda from one side or the other.

Stand by for the daily onslaught of assumptions, accusations and political finger pointing.

The FEDEX angle certainly seems to have undone him.

True, but there he was, mailing package bombs to people. IQ != wisdom.

Ted Kaczynski mailed bombs, but apparently without leaving any trail the investigators found (since his family broke the case by turning him in).

I could theorize about this current clown, but, honestly, I'd lost interest in him by the time he reached ambient temperature. Once the investigation is complete and released, I'll regain interest. Until then, I'll leave any speculation to the pundits.

I can't believe a guy walks into a FedEx location in Austin wearing latex gloves and no one was suspicious.

Wonder if he paid in cash?

Unless it's on line I pay cash for almost everything.

I have an estimate of what I'll need to the next couple of days and write a check at the bank.

Eat out? Odds and ends around town? All paid for with cash.

Don't carry my phone around with me after 5:00PM either.

Just wondering.

Reading the news this morning about his confession. The media almost seems disappointed that he's just a run of the mill crazy person, not a white supremacist or homophobe or never-Trumper. Just fuckin crazy. I guess just crazy is boring.
