Another bloody anniversary

Man, the last week of February really sucked in 1993, didn’t it? Today is the 10th anniversary of the BATF raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, a raid that left four agents and six Davidians dead, and which climaxed 51 days later on April 19 with the fiery deaths of 74 other cultists.

Among the things I didn’t know that I do now after reading that article and this one is that there are still followers of David Koresh out there, and that they don’t seem to be carrying around much of a grudge against the government for what happened. I can’t say much about their theology, but I certainly admire their ability to forgive and move on.

Stray thought: What do you think the threat level will be on April 19? After all the wolf-crying that’s been done, will anyone take it seriously? Just curious.
