Hilary Clinton's Campaign Staff Taken Hostage

A forty-ish man walked into the Clinton campaign headquarters and claimed he had a bomb, demanded to see and speak with the Senator, and is holding people there hostage. Reports variously say that one woman, or one woman and one child, have so far been released. Hilary Clinton was not present, nor even in the state of New Hampshire. The developing story is here. At this point, it is a standoff, and we don't know very much.

UPDATED: The Star Tribune is reporting that all the hostages have been freed.

SECOND UPDATE: The perpetrator, Lee Eisenberg, has surrendered to police. He was only sporting a few road flares with duct tape. His aim was to draw attention to the state of mental health treatment in this country. Which is ironic, considering John West's talk tomorrow in which he will lambast "the treatment of crime as a mental illness." (I attended West's talk at the University of Minnesota campus tonight; hopefully, I will post video soon of the talk and him ducking my question.)

You do realize that you are insane. Why the fixation on this site. You had a disagreement and it got a tad personal. Get over it. Move on. There are other places to go.

Not a lawyer but I can see a reason for banning people and for deleting. The same reasons why people will avoid those they had disagreements with or cross a street when they see a raving person.
