Warning to Sensitive: Link is to a very scary story.
I will have to write a dozen posts on how safe life really is and how nice most people are to make up for linking to this post. The one thing I can point out to Eavesdroppers is that this guy was targeting guys--Marines, even!
The lessons of the article are that (A) the effect of super-charismatic people on other people is really frightening, and (B) nobody, not even guys, should find themselves alone behind closed doors with a random stranger.
H/T Kathy Shaidle at 5FoF, and she is Canada's number one conservative shock-blogger, so don't link if you're sensitive. She is way blunt and seriously into shouting "Arabs!" in crowded theatres and a red-hot crusader for Canadian freedom of speech.
