Some people are pointing out that the whacko arrested for... um... something or other in Massachusetts was, in fact, a whacko.
In fact, someone has called him a "paranoid loon". Assuming that the press has been more accurate with his paranoia than they have with his gun collection, I'll grant that this may be true. Certainly some of the statements released thus far would indicate that his Reynold's Wrap yarmulke was a bit too tight.
However, I'm sure that cherry-picking my posts here since 2005, one could no doubt come up with a pastiche of gems that made me sound like I was a pathological goober about to saddle up and bust caps, too.
And where does "being a paranoid loon" fall in the penal code, anyway? Is that state, or federal? I mean, there’s a whole web forum full of people that believe Dick Cheney blew up the WTC so he could steal Iraq’s oil, and nobody’s arresting them.
