The April curse continues

If this stuff didn't happen in April I would ignore it.

April 6, 2012 - Earl Albert Moore sentenced to life in prison for placing an explosive device in Southwest Plaza on April 20, 2011, the anniversary of the Columbine shootings.
April 12, 2012 - Charles Manson, now 77, faces his 12th parole hearing.  It will probably be his last.
April 13, 2012 - It's a Friday.  Nothing really unusual about that, unless something else happens that day.


Here is an article about Moore:
"Had this incident taken place on any other day, and in any other location, it might have received modest local news coverage and been promptly forgotten. But because it happened on the Columbine anniversary within spitting distance of the school, the act quickly became an international story even as it freaked out locals fearful that a lethal copycat was on the loose.
So...was Moore's act intended as a Columbine homage. Not according to what he told investigators. He insisted that he didn't have any clue about the anniversary."
