A Washington DC television station is reporting an apparent meteorite fall in Lorton, Va. The space rock, which has been taken to the Smithsonian Institution, crashed through the roof of a dentist's office at around 5:45 p.m. on Monday, narrowly missing patients and staff.
The story on the Web site of WUSA9 in Washington says the mango-sized meteorite crashed through the roof and acoustical tiles of the Williamsburg Square Family Practice office in Lorton. Dr. Frank Ciampi told the station the crash was so loud he thought bookshelves had toppled.
This is not something to joke about. For one thing, this took place just a stone's throw from the White House. For another, have you noticed that these "incidents" seem to occur most often in gun-friendly states? We recently talked about the Arizona meteorite problem.
What's your opinion? Do you think it's right for supposedly responsible men to continue acting like this is not a serious problem? What's it gonna take?
