Adventures in Paradise Deja Vu

Well, paradise is where martyred Saleman Abdirahman Dirie must be now, unless he really committed suicide in Denver's upscale Burnsley Hotel, located only 2 miles from the site of this month's DNC convention.

The timing is especially coincidental considering Dr. Bruce Ivins committed suicide (official cause of death) late last month. Ivins was found unconscious at his home the morning of July 27 and died at Frederick Memorial on July 29, 2008, from an overdose of acetominophen with codeine. He seems to have committed suicide prior to formal charges by the FBI for his alleged involvement in the 2001 anthrax 'letter attacks', which killed five people. Letters containing anthrax spores had been mailed to 2 Democratic U.S. Senators, Daschle and Leahy.

In both instances, was the public to believe Islamic terrorism had been involved and Democrat leaders were the primary targets? Hmmm! Well, if that was Dr. Ivins intent and he was acting alone, he seems to have failed.

There also seem to be a number of unbalanced imitators out there. As friend Juan Caruso's choosing jingle goes:

Eenie...Meanie…Miney…Moe, Catch a prophet by the toe;

Eenie...Meanie…Miney…Moe, If he's peaceful, let him go;

Eenie...Meanie…Miney…Moe, Or, off to Guantánamo!

Is someone trying to intimidate DNC attendees or intimate Republicans in dastardly crimes perhaps? Draw your own conclusions, it will certainly be as sound as ours.
