Letter bomb for oil exec family -- Houston, TX U.S.A

Saturday, July 17, 2010

Houston police and federal authorities confirmed Tuesday that a pipe bomb sent to the home of a local oil executive was meant for his wife and not him.

Vennie Wolf, 58, was injured Friday evening when she opened a shoebox-size package that shot out shrapnel and nails.

As they chased leads, officials Tuesday said they believed the incident in northwest Houston was an isolated one. But they refused to discuss the investigation's progress or why Wolf may have been targeted by the bomb.

"It's an ongoing investigation," said Rob Elder, assistant special agent in charge at the Houston office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which is looking into what happened along with the Houston Police Department.

Curiosity won out

The package had arrived outside Wolf's home in the 2100 block of Seamist Court a few weeks earlier.

Authorities do not think the package was brought there by the U.S. Postal Service, but they're not saying where it came from.

Wolf was hesitant to open the package when it arrived because she didn't know who it was from, officials said, but she later opened it out of curiosity.

Wolf was taken to Memorial Hermann-Northwest Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries. She was later released and is now recuperating, police said.

Speculation about the bombing has run rampant in Wolf's neighborhood, which neighbors said has always been quiet and safe.

Some neighbors said the box had arrived disguised as a box of chocolates, but police declined to confirm that.

The shutters were drawn at the home Wolf owns with her husband, James Brock Moore III, and no one answered the door Tuesday.

Moore did not return a phone message at Adams Resources Exploration Corp., where he has been president since 1998.

Wolf and Moore appear to have kept a low profile in Houston. The couple is listed in University of Houston records as making a small donation to the university's engineering program, which Moore graduated from in 1964.

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
