You Can Ring My Bell

The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At MidnightAs long as you don’t threaten to blow it up.

One of our resident lunatics threatened to blow up the Liberty Bell this weekend. Smarty McGeniuspants didn’t realize the bell is so well protected that he’d need a tactical nuke to destroy it from the outside, but hey, we’ll give the guy an “A” for effort.

Park rangers earlier Saturday morning stopped the unidentified male, who police said was threatening to blow up the Liberty Bell. The man also said he had explosives in his backpacks. Two black backpacks were found in front of the Liberty Wheels wheelchair and scooter rental shop at 714 Market Street.

A member of the Philadelphia Police Department’s bomb squad unit began investigating the backpacks. Other members of the unit arrived later. Market Street reopened to pedestrians and traffic around 11:45 a.m. The Liberty Bell remained open.

As a result, the Obama administration is crafting legislation to ban backpacks.

    “As a result, the Obama administration is crafting legislation to ban backpacks.”

    It’s not a ban, just registration. Along with background checks for backpack buyers and other “common sense” regulations.

    This guy, Carlos Balsas was a professor at Ariz State Univ from 2004 to 2011. Paper doesn’t say why he is no longer there. Got low ratings on ratemyprof. Taught in Urban Planning.

    Old NFO – That can be good . . . and very, very bad.

    Rick – Especially those adorned with Hello Kitty.

    Jon – I guarantee he’s a libtard.

    Real – Guy should strapped to the bell while it is rung for 365 straight days.

    John D – “I think backpack registration is a balanced approach.”

    Kerry – So Jon Brooks was right; a raging libtard professor. Figures. I guess his idea of urban planning was to destroy Independence Mall and build a hash bar.

    Wyatt: That is by far a classic episode, but Tick Vs. Education is by far my favorite. Baby BommerangaTang. Says it all.
