    Clearly who ever is doing this is trying to cause panic. The party involved has picked hospitals and, schools. Doesn't that fall under the patriot act?

    Oh, for *****sakes, this is getting ridiculous. At least if he had stuck with the hospitals, we could just say that he'd watched too much Batman. And seriously, a Wal-Mart?

    They need to find this guy and give him a physically demanding job so he doesn't have time to think up stupid ways to waste his and everyone else's time and resources.

    Sounds like this person has a little too much time on his hands. 4 in one day sounds like he is really wanting to blow up something. Well they need to get him. This is so not funny so people who are taking it lightly shouldn't. It could happen just like 9-11 did. Now, i am not trying to compare them- i am just saying people don't need to take it lightly. It's is so weird that most of these are in Ohio. Now, why aren't there any in WV or somewhere other than Ohio. But, I think this guy/girl could maybe doing this to get out of school like if he went to Marietta he wants out of school. So why don't they try to find this person? I have 1 question and someone please try to help me get the answer: Did this guy call on a cell phone or a landline because, its hard to find a cell phone. This guy/girl may need to go away to get some help because its past 2:30 and Marietta still has the school. One last thing, THIS PERSON HAS TOO, TOO, TOO, TOO, TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS. HE/SHE NEEDS HELP ASAP.
