    Yeah, but targeting poor black people? Going on record to say that the cause of this is TDS.

    I do not know if they have identified the third victim yet or not.

    Total Dissolved Solids? They are bad in your water in high concentrations but not explosive.

    Ugh. Somebody is sending explosives through the mail, but if I put a couple of beers or a bottle of wine in the mail, I'll lose my mailing privilege.

    The first two victims are connected. The first victim's stepfather and the second victims grandmother are co-founders of the Austin Area Urban League.

    I don't know that I'd qualify the victims as "poor black people". The two connected relatives of the victims are relatively prominent, well educated and affluent local figures, particularly within the African-American community. There are connections with The University of Texas as well. Very alarming.

    There may be less homes in these areas that have surveillance systems? May be a factor in these areas being targeted.

    As I understand it, the packages weren't routed through formal delivery systems. Seems the packages were maybe delivered by the perp or perps.
