Now it’s very personal. I work less than 50 yards from where this was parked.

Couldn’t have anything to do with VA’s large mussulman communities, no could it? No of course not, as they are just peaceful travelers waving their own IEDs ...

Y’all should understand: this is a notable area, the modern commercial/shopping/dining area serving a large “living museum” of American revolutionary-era history. Serious choice of symbolism in positioning an IED here.

All of that is very true. Combine it the fact that this is Homecoming weekend for William & Mary and you have one of the busiest weekends of the year!

my alma mater. that is right across the street from dorms. I was the RA there in 1976.

I wonder if it REALLY was an IED, or just getting ready to trailgate.

This cobbled-together story is hard to follow, but I think the vehicle was cleared, in that it wasn't the explosive device. Hell, I carry two propane tanks in my vehicle when they need refilled.

It was some other device that was detonated, not the vehicle.

The three tanks were not an IED.

The car that exploded yesterday was.
“Stephen Powers, 30, of Gloucester, was arrested at his home, Riley said. It follows the explosion of the IED around 5 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot between the Berret’s Seafood & Taphouse and Williams-Sonoma.”

I’m surprised this isn’t making anything more than local news.
Like scared that it’s not national news.
Apparently no casualties, so not news.

I like that area. Very historical. Very disturbing someone would bomb it.
