The news is filled with the Red Planet landing, and with killer Jared Loughner. They would seem to be two separate threads that have little to do with each other. But we have to remind ourselves that they naturally overlap. The Mars lander, Curiosity, touches down early on the morning of August 6. The next day, Loughner allegedly is due to plea guilty to the murder of bystanders during his attempted assassination of a Member of Congress, who happened to be married to an astronaut.
Back in January 2011, I posted some thoughts, after the assassination attempt on January 8, 2011, of Representative Gabrielle Giffords. The story had many angles, and these were three of them:
"Mind Control" Mass Shooter: Jared Loughner
Loughner: A Copycat?
The Loughner Space Coincidences
Under the "Space Coincidence" postings, I detailed these groupings:
1) NASA Obsession
2) Giffords' NASA Astronaut Husband
3) Giffords' Husband's Astronaut Twin
5) The Very Strange Name Game Coincidence of the Two Dr. David Bowmans
Was Loughner, literally, engaging in a "bleeding"?
