    The price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 and the man at the Rigsby Road Taco Bell drive-thru had just ordered seven.

    The fast food customer was so disgruntled by the price hike he shot an air gun at the manager, displayed an assault rifle and pistol while in the restaurant's parking lot, fled as police were called, and pointed one of his weapons at three officers who pulled him over. Fleeing when they opened fire, he barricaded himself in his hotel room — all over $3.50 plus additional tax.

    The changes and economic pressures occurring in American society are starting to push people over the edge, beginning with those who are least capable of dealing rationally with unexpected change which seems oppressive. While there is a humorous aspect to this story it also serves as an indicator.

    I am frankly surprised that the homelessness, unemployment and the attendant miseries brought on by shady banking practices and other devious corporate maneuverings hasn't provoked a lot of suicidal violence. It would be interesting to know more about this burrito guy's background.

    That's what happens when you order something without reading the menu.

    This guy had to be a dimocrat.
