MALHEUR COUNTY -- Authorities have released the names of two men critically injured after they allegedly triggered several homemade bombs in an isolated stretch of Oregon rangeland Sunday.I am reminded of the Weather Underground bomb maker who experienced a sudden career end. According to the version that I heard from an acquaintance who was part of the New Left back then, one of these fools was making bombs in a New York City brownstone, while smoking.
Sixty-year-old Drex Brooks and 59-year-old Mark Brinton from Ontario are the men responsible for the blasts, according to Malheur County Sheriff Brian Wolfe.
Brooks is listed in serious condition at a Portland hospital. At last word, Brinton was in critical condition at a Boise hospital.
