Strange Insect

I took this picture of a strange insect on August 5.  I was holding off on posting it until I i.d.'d it, but I haven't been able to find my insect book.  So here it is anyway.  Pretty weird, huh.  How'd you like to stick a finger in those mandibles?  In all these years I've never seen one like it.  Which helps make up for the fact that I swear there are fewer dragonflies this year.

I stumbled upon your posting from Google after my son was bitten by one these strange bugs. I'm curious if you've determined what this thing is? They certainly are quite aggressive.
