Earlier, I suspected that the grenade supposedly tossed at Bush while he was in Georgia wasn’t even a grenade. I was wrong.
It would take quite a bit of luck to cause serious damage to someone 100 feet away from a grenade, but there no doubt would have been loss of life and carnage among those nearer.
I don’t really know what they mean by “could have exploded”. Does that mean that the pin had been pulled and it just plain didn’t go off? Or does that simply mean that it’s a real grenade and not a replica (or a sausage) like some thought?
