    I hope they get the b-tard soon. We don't need another Unabomber.

    The best that we can hope for is that he has one of his devices malfunction on him and blow his own head off in the confines of his own basement. The world doesn't need people like this in it.

    Sounds like another Ted Kaczynski - let's hope they take him out because he takes more innocent lives....

    Not sure how that could be the case. He died in the first explosion a week ago. If he were the dirtbag doing this, how would the two bombs from today have arrived at their destinations? Surely they're not stable enough to have gone through the mail.

    Appears to be taking a southbound track on the east side of town. Good info below:

    Exactly, which means he's a victim.

    From the OP's article: "House's death was initially investigated as suspicious but is now viewed as a homicide." It seems that they've ruled him out as the bomber.

    C'mon.

    Rhymes with "brake shoes" ?

    We must be vigilant !

    Especially because of the police's opinion of the surmised MO of the perp.

    That train's never late...especially these days...o_O

    It occurred to me that SXSW is going on right now. Wonder if there's a connection?

    And this from the police in the bombing story last week:
    "Police said based on evidence gathered so far, they believe the blast was "an isolated incident and that there is no continuing threat to the community.""

    Nothing to see here folks, move along. Geez.

    Three bombs is not an “isolated incident”.

    But I’m glad to hear as an Austin resident that two of the three target victims are dead and the a 75 year old women fighting for her life is nothing to see and I should just move on. Very comforting.

    Yep, agreed. But in the department's defense, that quote was right after the first bomb a few weeks ago.

    i'm curious how the devices were triggered. reports indicate that they were left on the porch, and exploded on the porch, hitting people. this means that unless the new-nibomber was watching from the bushes with a trigger, the primary charge was activated by some sort of mechanical trip. a tip sensor, maybe? considering that once the package was sealed you couldn't get in without electronic remotes, I kind of doubt that it was as simple as a tip-trip, where a steel ball rolls off a small pedestal onto a ring that completes the circuit and activates the device, simply because you'd blow yourself up with it.

    so the bombs went off at the right time from a sealed package presumably without supervision? unfortunately we may never know what exact kind of fuse was used.

    Uh, I don't think so. The police ought to be able to know a lot about those bombs, including the triggering device. I read one account where a victim brought it inside and it detonated when he opened it.
