An angry suicidal man in China set a bus on fire killing 47 people including himself. He also injured about 34 more people in the process. This is an interesting juxtaposition with the shootings our angry suicidal men perpetrate here, and shows that there are far easier and more effective ways to commit mass murder than the usual “gunman” archetype perpetuated by the media and emulated by our domestic crazy people. In a way we are lucky it is the “gunman” archetype that is embraced by our domestic crazies rather than the “arsonist” or the “bomber”.
