• Breaking News: Reasonable Person Does Reasonable Thing in Reasonable State

    I really hope this crashing planes into buildings meme dies out pretty soon…

    Austin police say a small plane crashed into the seven-story building in the 9400 block of Research Boulevard, per the Austin Statesman.

    CNN reported that the man set his house on fire, stole the plane and crashed it intentionally, citing a federal official…

    CBS Radio News tweeted that the FBI has an office nearby the site in the same office park. The building that was hit houses the IRS, according to reports.

    The name of the "pilot" was Joseph Andrew Stack, and he was at least kind enough to leave an explanatory note on his website

    "If you're reading this, you're no doubt asking yourself, 'Why did this have to happen?'" the message says. "The simple truth is that it is complicated and has been coming for a long time." In the long message, the writer rails against the government and, particularly, the Internal Revenue Service.

    "It's complicated," is a kind of understandable explanation for why you broke up with your girlfriend of seven years, but it it really really doesn't cut it for slamming planes into buildings.
