For the second time in 10 days, a package left on a porch exploded and killed somebody. Today, it was a teenager, and his mother was critically injured. Back on March 2, a man not too far from where we live was killed. Police aren’t saying the incidents are related, and they’re not saying if there is a connection between the victims. I don’t think I’ll be ordering anything anytime soon.

Update: Police are now saying that the bombings appear to be related. Neither package was delivered by a delivery service, and both victims were African American, which may or may not be a coincidence.


Maybe it’s finally time to install a front door camera of some sort.

Update 2: A second package bomb has detonated, this time critically injuring a 70-year-old woman.
