Nashville December 25th

On December 25, 2020, a car bomb detonated in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, United States, injuring at least three people and damaging dozens of buildings. The explosion took place on 2nd Avenue North between Church Street and Commerce Street at 6:29 a.m local time (CST). Officials have characterized the explosion as an “intentional act,” with reports of potentially multiple explosive devices being investigated. The explosion was felt “miles” away from the blast site. The Nashville Fire Department evacuated the downtown riverfront following the bombing. Witnesses reported hearing “gunshots early in the morning and a message coming from an RV parked in the street warning anyone in the area to evacuate.” The Federal Bureau of Investigation has taken over the investigation into the bombing. – Wikipedia

All we can do at this point is to ask “Why?”

And, due to the quick response of the police, there appear to be no casualties, thank goodness for that.

Perhaps it was too much to hope for that we would escape 2020 without another nasty event, another example, apparently, of the worst of human nature playing out in another public drama.

Sad news to wake up to on Christmas morning.

  1. I have been deep in my little domestic burrow over Xmas, deliberately avoiding the worldn as it has been such a shitty year and, frankly, a shitty Xmas. But this is even worse than the 2020-shitty we have come to know. What is wrong with people!?

  2. This thing is strange because the RV with the explosives was broadcasting warnings prior to the blast. No group has taken credit for it. Hard to know what the significance of all of this is. However, the perpetrators are probably merciless fanatics who can’t be dealt with logically–or understood logically.
