Anybody else been following this?
I tried to go to downtown Silver Spring early this afternoon and it was chaos! There were like a hundred cop cars, swat teams, bomb squads, fire trucks, ambulances, etc. Came home and checked the news to find out what was going on, haha.

Yeah this is crazy. I love living in the DC area but holy cow, some of the stuff that goes down here scares me.

I’ll take a hostage situation over a Glenn Beck rally any day of the week.

Heard the hostage taker was killed in the shooting.

Kind of sad though, he apparently died. I wondered about that when they said on the news that they shot at him and then said they thought when they shot him one of the bomb things might have gone off. I was like, “Wow, what are the chances he would survive that?”
One reporter interviewed a girl who had seen him repeated in Borders (he apparently spent a lot of time hanging out there) who said she had mixed emotions hearing he died, because he seemed like he really needed help when she talked with him in the past.

Yeah, it sounds like he had some mental problems and could have used some treatment. Apparently he has been waging some sort of protest war against the Discovery Channel for quite some time.
