Alta View Hospital hostage incident
The Alta View Hospital hostage incident began the night of September 20, 1991 when Richard Worthington, armed with a shotgun, a handgun and sticks of dynamite arrived at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, UT in an attempt to kill Dr. Glade Curtis who had performed a tubal ligation on his wife.
After planting the dynamite outside, Worthington entered the Hospital's Women's Center and took two nurses(Susan Woolley and Marjorie Wyler), a patient, Christan Downey, who was giving birth to her first child, her sister Carre, the baby's father Adam, and two newborn babies hostage (Caitlin, the daughter of Christan and Adam, was born during the siege). Dr. Curtis saw what was happening and hid in his office, where he called the police. When the police arrived nurse Karla Roth attempted to wrestle Worthington's shotgun from his hands. She was successful, but did not know he had two guns. As she ran away, Worthington shot her in the back with the other gun. Roth died several hours later from the wound.
Worthington held the hostages for eighteen hours. He was talked into surrendering and releasing the remaining hostages by Sergeant Don Bell and Detective Jill Candland of the Salt Lake City police department who were assisted by a hostage inside, a nurse named Susan Woolley. After an arrangement was made for his surrender, it started to fall apart do to miscommunication. Marjorie Wyler reached out and placed her hand on his hand holding the gun and told him this had to end. Worthington was worn out and gave up no fight as she then took the gun from him, allowing everyone to walk out without any further injuries. Worthington was sentenced to thirty-five years in prison for the murder of Karla Roth, he committed suicide in his prison cell on November 11, 1993.
The incident was portrayed in the 1992 TV movie Deliver Them From Evil: The Taking of Alta View starring Harry Hamlin and Teri Garr.

Vox Popoli: Conspiracy theorists, you disappoint me
For literally years, I've been hearing rumors concerning how Obama was going to cancel the presidential election and rule over the subdued nation as a CommunIslamic dictator with an iron fist. And now, with this so-called "hurricane" meme being pushed on a credulous nation by Obama's lapdogs in the mainstream, complete with photoshopped pictures of wind, rain, and eroded beaches and cheap Dan Rather-style videos of fake weather-buffeted reporters, giving Obama the perfect excuse to cancel the election next week, absolutely no one has managed to put two and two together? No one thinks this is the perfectly-timed storm to put an end American democracy? No one has even suggested that the man of mysterious birth who could make the oceans stop rising, and has now reportedly summoned the ocean's wrath in a suspiciously timely manner, is not the bastard son of Poseidon? Conspiracy theorists, you make me sad.
