  1. You have to wonder whose house (or apartment) was blown up, because we seem to have a recent rash of building explosions which have never been so prevalent in the past.

    In the pre-dictatorship days I remember of one house blowing up from a gas leak, and another explosion of propane tanks in a hardware store, and that was over a period of forty years. Now it’s happening every month.

  2. This place had two stories worth of apartments above a store owned by muslims, and next door to this building was a mosque. Thought that that was interesting info. 😉
