    Picture Emerges of Teen Suicide Pilot CHARLES BISHOP: To some, he was a smart, humorous student, which makes his suicide flight all the more incomprehensible.

He read Shakespeare in class, pulled together a middle school literary magazine and enjoyed a good game of flag football. Friends and family members who knew him best described Charles as a patriot. The teen who flew an airplane into the Bank of America building, carrying a note sympathizing with Osama bin...

    The crazed pilot who launched a kamikaze air attack on a Texas IRS office hid his anger so deeply, friends say they had no idea of his anti-establishment rage or the money woes he said were behind it. Joseph Stack, 53, had a nice home in middle-class Austin, Texas. He owned a single-engine airplane and had enough money to pursue a passion for country music that led him to produce his own album several years ago, pals told The Post. "We didn't think he was struggling financially, the way he presented himself. He never aired any grievance. He was real...

    In an article about Thursday's apparent suicide by a pilot in Austin, Texas, the folks at made two seemingly intentional links to the Tea Party movement. First, the piece began: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The long, rambling rant posted on a website eerily reflected the angry populist sentiments that have swept the country in the past year. In it, a Joe Stack inveighed against intrusive Big Brother government, corrupt corporate giants, irrational taxes, as well as the "puppet" George Bush. (See the making of the Tea Party movement.) Then, after the third paragraph which concluded, "Toward the end of what appears to...

      1-5-01 Kid didn't know it was '02 yet. I have prepared this statement in regards to the act I am about to commit. First of all, Osama bin Laden is absolutely justified in the terror he has caused on 9-11. He has brought a mighty nation to its knees! God blesses him and the others who helped make September 11th happen. The U.S. will have to face the consequences for its horrific actions against the Palestinian people and (illegible, could be Iraq?) by its allegiance with the monstrous Israelis who want nothing short of world domination! You will ...
