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.

What’s the scariest things that you just missed?

  1. Unfortunately, some people think violence is the best way to get attention to the point they fight for. But this kind of behavior only demonstrates its nonsense and lack of value.
