Target bombed over transgender policy

Well, it's happened.

Retail chain Target has faced right-wing wrath lately because of the retailer's relatively tolerant stance towards transgendered people. I reiterate, it's all relative: Big corporations typically are not giants of tolerance.

As right-wing activists have been harassing Target customers by following them around the store and into restrooms, things have gotten real at a Target location in Evanston, Illinois. Somebody set off a bomb in the women's restroom there.

Luckily, nobody was in the lavatory when the bomb exploded. Otherwise, serious injuries would have been certain.

Now can we call it terrorism?
