A Detroit News breathless 500 word on-line article on Sunday March 28 2010 5:46PM headlined “Seven arrested in FBI raids linked to Christian militia group” said the group was described as “Christian soldiers preparing for the arrival and battle with the anti-Christ, ” are “actively training to be alongside Jesus,” and oh no! “made threats of violence against Islamic organizations.”
But nothing more is said about those 'threats'. Were they threats to snuff out any hapless Islamic journalist trudging thru the Chistian heartland trying to get a story? Did they threaten to hijack Islamic airliners and fly them into that new half-mile-high skyscraper in Dubai? Did one of the Christian Militamen, a licensed psychiatrist inadvertently assgned to Fort Hood, threaten to shoot as many unarmed US soldiers on the base as he could?
Is it at all possible to get assurance that the FBI and company are spending as much time and effort protecting America from Muslim terrorists as they appear to be spending protecting Muslims in America from alleged Christian terrorists?

For about a year I had small offices in Clayton MO, in the Country Club Plaza in KC. I rode a ten-speed bike around Lake Michigan (The bottom half in one week in June 1978, another week for the top half in 1980, used the Badger both times.
Don't get to travel much anymore, but still try to rent a car and go around the Lake in March every year. Sure, there's still snow, and it's not warm, OTOH there are no bugs and no toursts. Greatest little tavern in the world is Sherry's Port Bar in Garden UP MI
