Explosion in Ellison Bay, Wisconsin
My mom sent me an email saying that there was some kind of explosion in Ellison Bay, WI. Two people were killed and three buildings were destroyed. The Pioneer Store was one of the buildings that was blown up. That store was really neat. It looked like a store from a western movie, with shelves the entire height of the main room and narrow aisles. They even had a pretty decent movie selection and would keep your membership on a 3x5 card in a plastic box. My brother and I went down there for ice cream and root beer the summer after my first freshman year in college. It was neat just to walk down the aisles and look at all the stuff. Heaps of different food items and necessities.
Forgive me (or don't) if I sound callous, but I was more shocked by the store's destruction then the poor saps that bought it. This bugs me. No one deserves to get blown up while they sleep.
The authorities are not yet sure of the cause of the explosion, but I bet it wasn't the terrorists.

PS. This was not meant to detract in any way from the horrible event in Mumbai. I only heard about that when I got home Tuesday night.
