    Thanks, watching it. Appears to be a Federal building. Guy burnt his own house, could be an act of suicidal revenge against the government over some personal issue.

    Amazing and well-thought our letter written by Joseph Stack, the man who crashed the plane. Sadly, he makes many good points. I hope people take notice. This is not "rambling" as has been described in the media.

    "I saw it written once that the definition of insanity is repeating the same process over and over and expecting the outcome to suddenly be different," the online message says. "I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let's try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well."

    Sounds like a man who lost all hope in this country.

    I'm glad that there is only one person unaccounted for at the moment, and that there seems to be very little in terms of collateral damage.

    I cringe to think how this will be played by national politicians and my local/state ones.

    like i know he had his reason...

    ...but to me that just seems like a lot of effort to burn a house down and steal a plane and then crash it

    He didn't just burn a house down, he set his own house on fire, WITH HIS FAMILY STILL INSIDE.

    (as far as I could tell from the stories I've been reading)
