    Which show that "Patriot related bombings" do not always target govt buildings or occur on significant dates

It also sets the difference between pro and amateur.
    Not all "random" crime is what it appears to be. Remember the DC sniper? He was using random victims to mask the planned execution of his ex-wife.

    Investigators and the prosecution suggested during pre-trial motions that Muhammad intended to kill his ex-wife Mildred, who had estranged him from his children. According to this theory, the other shootings were intended to cover up the motive for the crime, since Muhammad believed that the police would not focus on an estranged ex-husband as a suspect if she looked like a random victim of a serial killer. Muhammad frequented the neighborhood where she lived during the attacks, and some of the incidents occurred nearby. Additionally, he had earlier made threats against her. Mildred herself made the claim that she was his intended target. However, Judge LeRoy Millette, Jr. prevented prosecutors from presenting that theory during the trial, saying that a link had not been firmly established.

    I had a lot on my plate to do today, and was handling what I could, when I heard the awful news from Boston. I've been glued here at my laptop ever since!

    Nonsense.

    There have been plenty of attacks by anti-govt. groups that were not directed at govt. buildings

    Indeed, just take a look at the SDS.

    Pretty much nearly every group has been known to use bombs. Ourselves included; we just drop ours out of a plane.

    Actually it does.. it was a specifically chosen target which had a direct connection to the person's believes.

    In other words it is or it isn't "Patriot's Day" related in the same way as it is or isn't marathon related, and is or isn't Boston related.

    In other words, we still don't know a damn thing.
