Hey, What Are the Odds This Laughner Guy Did the Maryland Package Bombs Too?

A commenter mentioned this possibility.

Yesterday, when I'd said the package-bomber (or package ignitng-devicer) was probably white, a commenter (sorry, forget who) agreed, noting his writing pattern ("Total bullshit") seemed to indicate a 20-something white loser college-dropout wannabe-profound sort of guy.

And it turns out that Jared Laughner is a white loser college-dropout wannabe-profound sort of guy.

Counting against this is geography, since it's a general rule that serial killers stick close to home or places they know well; while nothing precludes him taking a trip to the DC area right before his bloody swan song, it's not a typical thing; usually serial killers want to stick to areas they know for comfort/familiarity. (Laughner went to local community college in AZ, so he wouldn't know the MD or DC area from that.)

Still, it's a possibility. Who knows, maybe.

By the way, if it occurred to you as it did to me that it was very unlikely this psychotic joined the army, give yourself a cookie.

According to his YouTube profile, he went to a recruitment center, but no mention of actual enlistment. (If you believe that, which I do, provisionally.)

Hah! t-bird sums up the attitude of the MFM generally:

Either he's a Tea Party extremist or... please, no labels.
