    Can someone tell me who runs this website? I am officially un-liking this page. Terrible spelling and grammar and reporting "facts" from unconfirmed sources. I would suggest not using sensationalism and stick to solid information.

    So all you idiots that voted for gun regulation, what are you going to do about fertilizer and other bomb building equipment. You are all a big joke!

    Is this really the time to say these things? People have been injured and you turn this political so quickly? You're demented. Please get some help.

    Who cares about misspellings and wrong grammar? People are hurt, some may be dead. Have a heart. If you don't like it don't read the posts. It's easy enough to block the page. You're the one who "liked" it. Go unlike it if you choose but don't be so nasty. It's called sending thoughts and prayers for the victims. Hoping they catch who ever hurt them. Not nitpicking how the story is typed out.

    I hope they have caught the people tht did it and but then away so they don't have to do it again some where else and pray for all the victims

  9. Jacalyn Engler

  10. Stephanie Sarabia

    Excuse me people have been killed. Pray for the families and people who have been injured. There is a time and place to do the political bashing, this is not the time.

    Fox News just loves this type of carnage. It's what they sell. Front row tickets to the deaths of our friends and neighbors -all this and more hype for just a few of your dollars.

  13. David McCallister

    We'd better outlaw bombs now….oh wait, they are already illegal. I wonder what blooming door and obozo have to say?

    Everybody write to Anousheh Ansari. She is a Muslim Astronaut and a successful entrepreneur. Tell her to start space industries in Arab countries and train more Astronauts from the middle east, or else.

  15. Viva Barbarella

    Everyone please write to the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), ask them to terraform Mars and Ganymede for you. There are many space agencies throughout the world.

    I realize people were hurt,Stephanie,and I prayed for them and still do. Everyone knew what I was getting at, had nothing to do with being political, it was about all the peoples rights being taken away from them. Calling me demented with Alice and Wonderland as your cover picture? Now what are you smoking and what color is the rabbit?
