You should study “Ted”. You might find that industrialized society and the things that come with it are inevitable and his feelings about what should be done about it.

Then study his take on liberals and what was going on in his life (and other white males) and institutions at that particular time.

You want “entertainment”, google how the Unabomber almost killed Elmer Keith.

I hope they catch the person too.

A business here in Marble Falls found a suspicious package this afternoon. Marble Falls PD has requested Austin Bomb Squad and have started evacuating nearby business. I hope this is a false alarm.

Elmer!**Where's your hat?**What happened?"

Elmer Keith bareheaded in public was a rare sight.**Not even we who'd known Elmer for a quarter of a century or more had ever seen him away from home without his famous Stetson.**There were even a few who were convinced that his big Stetson was permanently grafted to his scalp.**But here he was, dressed in a suit and carrying his briefcase, but bareheaded.**Clearly, something dramatic and probably catastrophic had occurred.

"My plane caught fire!"

Elmer's eyes were still wide with alarm, and his clothes smelled of smoke.**He said that as his flight out of Chicago was climbing to cruise altitude, the passenger cabin had begun to fill with smoke.**The captain had announced that there was a problem and that instead of flying on to Washington's National Airport, he would make an emergency landing at Dulles International Airport.

When the Boeing 727 stopped rolling, Elmer said, the smoke was so thick that he could barely see the opposite side of the passenger cabin.**The captain had rushed aft, telling everyone to forget everything in the overhead compartments and "just get out!"**Elmer's briefcase was in his lap, his big Stetson stashed overhead out of reach.

Airport medics had set up arrangements to take care of passengers who needed attention.**But Elmer, who could calmly face any number of oncoming lions, buffalo, rhino, or elephant, was scared spitless of doctors, nurses, and hospitals.**So he'd fled.

Somewhere along the way, someone with American Airlines had told the passengers that their luggage and effects (any that hadn't burnt, presumably) would be delivered to them as soon as possible, wherever they would be.**Sooner or later, Elmer would be back to normal under the shade of that familiar and reassuring Stetson brim.

Not until more than sixteen years later, long after my old friend's death, would any of us learn the rest of the story.**Elmer and I spent the afternoon of the next day alone together, talking, and he told me more about the incident than he'd told us a day earlier, but recent events overseas made me guess wrong about the source of the "fire"**on that American Airlines 727.

Remington had invited the usual crowd of gun writers to Washington, DC, for the 1979 new-products seminar and waterfowl shooting at Remington Farms.**Company people met each of us when our flights arrived, and took us to the Remington hospitality suite in a Washington hotel.**Once all the writers had arrived, a chartered Greyhound bus would take us across Chesapeake Bay to a motel near Remington Farms on the east side of the bay.

Elmer's hat and luggage hadn't arrived by the time we boarded the bus for the ride across the bay.**They hadn't arrived by breakfast the next morning.

That morning, we shot ducks and geese.**Elmer borrowed my extra wool shirt and trousers, turned the cuffs back, and went hunting.**After lunch at Remington Farms, when the rest of the boys went off to shoot clay birds, Elmer and I went back to the motel.**After a few minutes, Elmer brought my extra clothes to my room.**His luggage had arrived while we were out waterfowling.**The earth was again spinning on its normal axis, with Elmer's Stetson restored to him.**As he and I always did, every chance we got, we spent the afternoon just sitting, and strolling around the motel, chatting about gun stuff.

Still curious about the fire on the aircraft, I asked Elmer for more details.**He said there'd been a palpable thump and a tremor in the aircraft, then the first thin smoke that had thickened rapidly.

"Elmer, that was a bomb!"

He nodded.**"Yeah, I think you're right."

The bomb had apparently exploded deep inside a cargo hold filled with mail, and the compressible mail had absorbed and attenuated the blast force, then had caught fire and smoldered without flaring into wild, rampaging flames.**So it was most likely a mail or package bomb, already a notorious weapon of terrorists.**We wondered who'd done it.

Ten days before, a mob had stormed the American embassy in Teheran, taking the hostages whom they eventually held for 444 days.**I guessed that Iranian militants had probably mailed that bomb.

The next day, the Washington Post confirmed that it had been a bomb:

"A bomb exploded Thursday in the cargo section of an American Airlines jetliner en route to Washington from Chicago with 80 persons aboard, forcing the 727 to make an emergency landing at Dulles International Airport.**The plane, its passenger compartment filled with smoke, landed safely shortly before 1:00 p.m. at Dulles.**No injuries were reported among the 72 passengers and 8 crew members [12 people treated for smoke inhalation].**'Very quickly the whole fuselage filled with smoke,' said one of the passengers aboard American's flight 444 that was headed for Washington National Airport.**He called the incident 'scary, very scary.'

"No one immediately claimed responsibility for planting the bomb on the plane, and authorities said they had not determined any motive for the incident.**One knowledgeable source noted that if the bomb were sent through the mail, the sender would have had no way of knowing which flight it would have been placed aboard."

The rest of the story didn't become clear until April 1996, in news summaries after an arrest here in western Montana.**On a tip from the suspect's family, the FBI had taken Theodore Kaczynski into custody as the long-sought "Unabomber."**Later catch-up accounts listed Kaczynski's known or attributed bombs, some of them not suspected as having been his work until the FBI examined his diaries and notes.

One of those caught my attention.

When:**14 November 1979

Where:**in the cargo hold of an American Airlines 727, flight 444, from Chicago to Washington.

Elmer's flight.

Didnt the unabomber mail most of his packages? Had the same calling card so he got credit? Generally used the same kind of pipe bomb?

Seems like the Austin guy is actually setting the bombs up himself.

I hope it is and I hope it’s not. If they catch a bomb before it detonated there may be something that will lead them to the bomber. Short of them catching him in the act I don’t know how else they will get him.

I’m gonna go out on limb and say the one yesterday was an accidental discharge by the suspects. Two males in their 20s package on the side of the road where all the others have been on door steps. I think they were getting ready to set it when it went off.

Just had a little extra time to brainstorm

Either that or the bomber is evolving and changing his delivery due to everyone looking for packages on their porch.

I dont think there is any way it is more than one person. Seems odd that this one seemed to have no particular target.

ATF says there was a sign involved, but it wasn't a "for sale" sign like some homeowners have been saying. "That was likely to anchor the package – because when you use a tripwire – you have to use both sides of it so they probably anchored the package to that – and then anchored the other side of the tripwire," said a spokesperson with ATF.........He noted in an earlier press conference that the bombs have different kinds of projectiles within them.......Chief Manley said in a press conference at 1:45 a.m. Monday that the possibility the bomb was triggered by a trip wire and the fact that the explosive device was left next to the road instead of on a front porch like the previous three cases necessitated a new warning to the public.

My first post was more sarcasm directed toward the liberal idiots and their hipster hypocrisy.

Its likely certain the explosive experts are on the trail.
Yeah, Ted didn’t like the general direction society was moving and felt that industry and technology were degrading the moral fiber, so he used bombs to communicate his message and hurt people at intuitions he felt were progressing the initiative.

It’s interesting, generally a bomb maker stays “faithful” on a triggering method. This cat is all over the map. LEO is going to have to reverse engineer those rigs to try and find a common thread. And the maker must have others ready to go since he/she can’t go on the open market for materials anymore. Too many folks looking for odd/exotic bulk purchases.

Dunno but I heard an interview this morning with an Austin news producer that some of the components are highly exotic and volitile. So I would think that any bulk purchase would raise a flag.

Some of the most potent and sensitive components in an explosive train are so simplistic one would ask themselves “was that discovered by accident the hard way?”. And it doesn’t take a “bulk” purchase to make it.

If the ATF and FBI are involved then they have probably already interviewed the bomber umpteen times and released him to the public.

An unfortunate fact of most of the shootings and bombings.

I likely have more “education” on explosives and the mindset of bombers than you’d ever believe.

Not the case. They were from the neighborhood. There were numerous differences this time compared to the past bombs but materials matched prior bombs.

Man this is crazy. Having a random package show up on my cattleguard after 830 last night doesnt make me want to open it. My wife thinks its from etsy out of Kyle, Tx and we got bombs blowing up on either side of that town. I dont live near Austin, but that doesnt make me want to mess with that package anymore than I already do... Hope they find this bomber soon.

I predicted long ago that this would happen. Politicians can't wait to take our guns away, but the real threat is a bomber who can be somewhere else when his carnage occurs. They will catch this guy eventually, but who knows how many people will be killed and maimed in the mean time. At least, when they use a gun, they have to be present to use it, and they get caught. You can make anything illegal, but you can't make criminals obey the law.

I'm guessing white male, ISIS is usually about making a big public scene, but there is definitely a jihad movement here. There was a Muslim book store right off Ben white. it was always closed and sometimes around mid night there would be hundreds of cars mostly taxis pull up and go into the book store, all Muslim males,(huge parking lot with a golds gym). It is now closed down, but jihad is spray painted nearby, and the meetups were rare but they had a huge meeting on the night of September 11th a few years back.

Don't worry. I will wager we don't hear why this guy is doing this. Not unless he blames Trump.

I dont live near Austin, but that doesnt make me want to mess with that package anymore than I already do... Hope they find this bomber soon.

As for the bomber, I do hope he/she is caught alive so we can get answers. But I do agree that even if he/she is the answers we get will be few. Seems we never hear the whole truth anymore. But I pray this individual is caught soon and no more innocent people are harmed.

We should encourage our kids to protest the 1st amendment and push for internet censorship (since anyone could find bomb making instructions online). Those kids could be really inspirational.

I really didn't need another reason to stay out of Austin, but OK.
