Regional news

This is happening right here around us. Not sure whether this is being reported widely.

Monday night (February 8, 2010) two church building fires -- of Dover Baptist Church and Clear Springs Missionary Baptist Church -- happened within an hour and a few miles of each other. This brings to a total of nine deliberately set fires of church buildings in East Texas since January 1, 2010. A church building in Temple in central Texas was also on set fire deliberately, according to the BATF.

I recall a similar outbreak of burnings several years back in other states. Those were believed to be race related. There does not seem to be any particular pattern here, other than the proximity. Just another horrible indicator of the times we are living in.
