Someone in the Gawker thread just suggested this could be a Boston-Tea-Party themed act of domestic terrorism since it's Boston, and Tax Day. It had better not be. I swear to fucking dog, someone had better not have blown up a bunch of people to make a point about the federal income tax. There's only so much crazy I can take, and at least if this is religious crazy I won't have to build another compartment in my brain to hold it.
