Loon Divebombs IRS

Some loon with an airplane crashed into an IRS building. You can't kill a bureaucracy like that. Even Russian Tsar Nicholas II couldn't shut down the Duma in 1917 and he was the king!

[WSJ] Smoke billows from a building after a small private plane crashed there.

AUSTIN, Texas—A pilot slammed his small plane into a seven-story building that housed the local office of the Internal Revenue Service Thursday, apparently killing himself and one agency employee, in what federal officials described as a deliberate suicide attack amid a long-running tax dispute.

Investigators are looking into whether the pilot, 53-year-old Andrew Joseph Stack, also set his house on fire before taking off in his single-engine Piper Dakota around 9:40 a.m. local time.

And the difference between a homicidal criminal and a terrorist is?
