Looks like someone was asleep at the gate to the looney bin.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

The facility's not far from me and the suspect lives in a nearby suburb. As of Saturday, the news was reporting air travel is still a bit delayed as a result of the fire.

From a prepping standpoint, it might be prudent to try to steer clear of O'Hare and Midway flights, or at least prepare for overnight layovers or cancellations.

My favorite, apparently from the suspect's Facebook page, sheds a bit of light on his state of mind:
... I'm gonna smoke this blunt and move on ...

I'd expect there'll be more updates throughout the weekend.
