    Richard, how about your own "little cell" here in Lodi?

    Nevermind this case, how about the latest arrest of an insurging terrorist stem cell in Ohio? He was arrested on several charges including intent to blow up weapons of mass destruction. Good luck explaining that one. For people like T&C and Gail Floyd it's hook, line and sinker. For the rest of the population with brains, it's real easy to point out the artificial fear this government wants people to live in. Welcome to the imaginary freedom (hell) you've created for yourself, T&C.
