Ohio Man Wanted For Arson, Law-Making

Via Fox8:

Less than 24 hours after the firebombing of the municipal court offices in Mansfield, State, Local and Federal investigators have a suspect they believe is responsible and late Monday were sparing no effort to try and find him.

40-year-old Kevin Dye of Mansfield is wanted for aggravated arson and manufacturing a dangerous ordinance.

Under those same standards, can we get the FBI to move on Capitol Hill and arrest House and Senate Democrats?

(dear editor: the word you were looking for is ordnance)

I am SO glad you posted the () portion :D...I read the "ordinance" section 3 times before my brain forced my eyes lower.

Years back I worked for a DC based beltway bandit. While we were working on a project for AF Special Operations Command related to munitions and weapons systems, we had a (DC based naturally) tech editor who insisted on changing every occurrence of "ordnance" to "ordinance" no matter how many times we explained this to her. Since that company didn't allow mere techies to contaminate the output of the highly paid tech editors with our grubby paws, that was the way our documents frequently went to AFSOC. How embarrassing.
