 	That was a *JOKE*, son! A *JOKE*!
 	It's a sad day when people on the net can't detect sarcasm unless 
 it's got an emoticon attached to it.
 	BTW, as far as I can tell, the Black Panther Militia is a legal 
 citizens action group with a very few members. It doesn't do much and 
 only got media attention when its leader was convicted for making 
 threatening statements to the judge who was trying the BPM leader's son 
 for murder. I didn't see that as a conspiracy so much as a hot-headed 
 statement from a father trying to protect his son. (The actual threat was 
 along the lines of "You sentence my son to death, and I'll kill you.")
