The Strange Case of Balochistan Bryant.

Some suburbanite kids fall in with a bad crowd and smoke pot or steal car stereos. Others fall in with a bad crowd and join al Qaeda.

I did find this blurb from the article interesting:
With his travel plans made, Vinas seemed happier. Kuilan recalled Vinas' "whole demeanor lightened up."

Acevedo remembered going to a gun range with Vinas.

"We probably shot a good 200 rounds," he recalled. "He just felt free."
Yeah, that's often ominous foreshadowing in my life, too. Usually right after I leave the range, I go join an Islamic terrorist cell and blow myself up. Sometimes twice in the same weekend.

Perhaps sometime you could do a fashion post, about how you select your burkas. :-/

Given the success rate of recent attempts, that is more that possible.

His freaking out over FEMA camp rumors seemed sorta familiar....

Kids these days, they blow up so fast....

Am I the only one who, until a double-take was completed, thought dude's name was Avocado?

Nope, I did, too. I thought that food aliases were a bit corny, though.

I used to know someone named Acevedo, so I parse it okay at a glance. (But I did that her name the first time I saw it written down.)

Just stop that. You know you can't blow yourself up twice.
