Wednesday Afternoon Reads: Late AfternoonPosted: March 21, 2018
Sorry so late, my mom had her endoscopy today…he stomach looks the same so I guess this is good?
At any rate, the thread is late…and it will be short. As you know now, the Austin bomber blew himself up to pieces.
The suspected serial bomber who terrorized Austin with a string of exploding packages died early Wednesday after detonating an explosive device in his vehicle as police closed in on him, authorities said.
Austin police and the FBI tracked him to a hotel parking lot in Round Rock, Tex., about 18 miles north of the Texas capital, and found his vehicle there, Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said. Officers wanted to wait for tactical units to arrive before trying to take him into custody, but he started to drive away.
The man stopped on the side of the Interstate 35 frontage road, and as Austin SWAT officers approached, he detonated a bomb, knocking one of the officers backward and injuring him, Manley said.
I just want to share two more links with you before we get to some cartoons:
Ahead of Facebook’s worst one-day decline since 2012, prompted by news that data affecting 51.3 million members was improperly shared with a political consulting firm, Zuckerberg had been busy selling stock. So far this year, he has sold more than 5 million shares.
Disposing of those Facebook shares FB, +0.04% before Tuesday ended up saving about $70 million, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings and some arithmetic by MarketWatch. At Tuesday’s close, the 5.4 million shares Zuckerberg has sold this year under a predetermined plan would be worth $910 million. Zuckerberg made about $980 million selling those shares, according to calculations using average weighted prices reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Zuckerberg is a real mutthafukker.
I hope you can see this video:

Now the funnies:
Hey, this cartoon reminds me of the paintings in those Hammer films…starring Vincent Price:

This is an open thread…stay warm.
