Bomb threat thwarted in Spokane

Story is just breaking now so reports are sketchy but it appears there was a serious bomb attempt in Washington state yesterday.
A backpack bomb with the potential of killing or injuring dozens of people was found Monday along the route of a Martin Luther King Day “unity march” in downtown Spokane, Wash., authorities said today.
Gratefully, the bomb was discovered and neutralized well before it could cause mass mayhem.

Don't want to jump to any hasty conclusions but that the bomb was planted along a MLK parade route does make it seem likely we'll be adding this incident to Digby's list.
