Wednesday Afternoon Reads: Late Afternoon

Ed Hall,


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.

Austin bomber: Mark Anthony Conditt identified as suspect, killed in blast as police closed in – The Washington Post

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.

More at the link of course…

I just want to share two more links with you before we get to some cartoons:


Zuckerberg saved tens of millions of dollars by selling Facebook stock ahead of Monday’s decline – MarketWatch

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:

    The only person who’d make me happier to see behind bars than tRump is Zuckerberg. And if selling his stocks wasn’t insider trading I’ll kiss my own a$$.

    As far as all the “surprise” users are expressing that they’ve been Zuckered – people have been pointing out what CrackBook was all about since the beginning.

    It’s too bad a site with so much potential has been run like it has. I think it’s been good for a lot of people so I’m not blaming anyone for being on the site. Just not my cup of tea.

      That is what I heard.

      I would really like to know what Hills did to MSNBC because no matter what they are talking about, it always gets back around to throwing shade on Hillary.

      That Jackass actually brought up what “the DNC did to Bernie…”

      THAT in his opinion was the “crime.”


      • quixote says:

        The part I don’t understand about what the DNC did to Bernie is that as far as I can see what they did is run a lot of caucuses that gave him way more delegates than he would have got in primaries.

        (Funny, long ago, about twenty years ago in Dump time, which is I guess about two circuits of the planet around the sun, I thought once he obviously lost by every means of calculation possible, he’d go back to Vermont and disappear. Hah.)
