Two bizarre incidents in Washington DC during the fisrt week of the Federal Government Shutdown precipitated by the Budget/ Debt-Ceiling crisis caught the attention of many this week.
1) An unidentified man set himself ablaze on the Mall outside the Capitol.
We know nothing about him. He is invisible. No media outlet wants to uncover some vestige of fact that might help us understand WHY he did this terrible act of violence HIMSELF?
2) Another women puts herself, her child and countless others at potential risk - yet we are absolving her of any responsibilty?
WAIT Damit! Stephan Molyneux has beat me to it.
UPDATE Oct 12 - Dead man is identified as John Constantino, 64, of Mount Laurel, N.J.
