Oh, Internet! How could your denizens ever fail to disappoint? Yes, there's already serious (for a given value of "serious") rumor that the exploding houses on the south side of Indianapolis (killing a well-liked grade school teacher and her husband) were actually the result of a drone strike. Or a drone strike gone wrong, intended to take out the big building (on the northeast side of the county, easily 25 miles away) where Uncle Sam processes payroll for this country's armed forces.
And why, you might ask? Why, because we're in the middle of a coup attempt! (Nothing gets the troops on your side like fouling up their pay? What?)
Hmpf. And I didn't even bake a cake.
...Meanwhile, plenty of real people have suffered real harm; homes within a two-block radius are still off-limits until they can be assessed for safety. Private charity has stepped right up, to the point that they're turning away additional food, clothing and other material items, as they have nearly filled up a church basement -- still accepting cash; they're going to be needing it.
