Fortunately, it seems to have ended peacefully and the hostage-taker, a mentally disturbed man, may have been "armed" with roadside flares instead of a real bomb. Still, this is traumatic and I hope it doesn't result in fewer volunteers for all campaigns and/or such beefed up security that the public finds it difficult to visit local campaign headquarters across the nation.Sadly, I expect that if either Clinton or Obama actually get elected there may be assassination attempts. Our society is that sick and weapons are too easy to come by.
