Dear reader, we have a profoundly frightening development unfolding at this very moment.
Secret Service officials have intercepted explosive devices that were sent to the homes of former President and Mrs. Bill Clinton, former President and Mrs. Barack Obama, liberal political megadonor George Soros, CNN headquarters in New York and — this likely confuses the casual observer — the White House.
None of the individuals targeted by the bomber was in danger.
It would be easy to label whoever did this as someone — or several people — associated with a right-wing group, given that Donald Trump has targeted CNN as a purveyor of “fake news” and, of course, has pilloried the Clintons, former President Obama and Soros.
But the White House also was by someone intent on doing damage to the president’s home and those who live and work inside it.
Good grief! Is this what we’ve come to?
Thank goodness the authorities were able to intercept the packages, which reportedly have been ID’d as containing explosives.
Let us all hope and pray the FBI, the Secret Service and local police authorities are able to arrest whoever is responsible.
I am now frightened.
