ASPEN A man who left bomb threats and homemade bombs around Aspen on New Year's Eve shot and killed himself in his car a few hours after his threats cleared much of the resort town, Aspen Police said.

Assistant Aspen Police Chief Bill Linn said James Chester Blanning, 72, walked into two Aspen banks Wednesday afternoon and left packages wrapped in holiday paper along with notes saying the boxes contained bombs. The notes threatened "mass death" and demanded $60,000 cash, along with criticisms of President George Bush, Linn said.

Let's hope it's contagious.

Is the gene pool a little cleaner today?

This guy couldn’t wait just a few more weeks and the world would have been filled with sunshine and puppies.

That’s some note. What a pitiful end to a pitiful little life.

Well I guess he had to get this done before Bush left office.

Other than the demand for money, this note reads like your typical Keith Uberschmuck rant.

Some other wacko killed a ski resort manager in Colorado yesterday for the crime of being Catholic. What gives in that state anyway? They should change their motto to “Too goofy for California.”

BDS raises it's moronic head 2009!!

Bush will be blamed for EVERYTHING that goes wrong over the next 4 years.

Watch the MSM's reporting "CHANGE" significantly on Jan 21, 2009, it will be the GLASS HALF-FULL approach rather than the GLASS COMPLETELY EMPTY approach we have witnessed over the past 8 years.

The one good thing that happens whenever a Democrat becomes POTUS, the HOMELESS problem just vanishes!!

What an impatient fool.

All he had to do was detonate the bombs. Wait to be cleared on a technicality or pardoned by Obammie the Commie, then get a secure, tenured job teaching education in Chicago, write some crap books, and obtain lots of fame and fortune using the capitalist system he loathed so much he wanted to blow it up.

One of the first things they taught us in Catholic school was how to write a hold up note that was concise and free of vulgarity or grammatical errors.

Hmmmm, 72 years old, and his note makes it sound like he was in Iraq. Maybe I’m reading it wrong.

It sounds like his life was a useless one, anyway, but what a way to go out to make sure somebody noticed him. Sad.
