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.
