How common are terrorist sympathizers in Nevada County?

The early-Sunday freeway shootout and arrest of Tuolomne County resident Byron Williams kept him from following through with his alleged plans for murder at San Francisco's ACLU and Tides Foundation offices; next time you're stopped by the CHP, a heartfelt Thank You is in order.

Knowing some local hardcore right wing fellows, I asked one this morning, about his reaction to the news of this guy's arrest. The response? In a sense - but only one sense - there was disapproval: "he couldn't even get near the target"(*).

Ask your Tea Party Patriot (or other Beck/Limbaugh-listening) friends and neighbors whether they support what this guy was (allegedly) trying to do; I'd be curious to know what you find.
"...we're well past the point where it's just a matter of conservatives behaving like tantrum-throwing spoiled brats. ... When a mob is surrounding your house with torches and telling you they intend to burn it down, "civility" really isn't the issue any more." (*)

Shades of the Weismann case.
