Just When You Thought it Was Safe to go to Critique Group


Action is fun to read about, but reading has a nice safe distance.  It’s definitely not fun when it intervenes in real life!  Our critique group meets in the food court of a local mall in the evening.  During lunch, a man dropped a Molotov Cocktail from one of the upper floors into the food court.  Evidently, he wasn’t very good at building Molotov Cocktails, since it didn’t go off.  By the time I got there, law enforcement had finally removed the police tape.  Only about three restaurants remained opened open — everything else had shut down.

You can read the news story here in the Washington Post.

We still met, by the way.
