On the Boston Marathon Bombs

My thoughts are with those who suffer, both in Boston and in Iraq.  It is far too early to conclude anything about the Boston bombings, except that the events qualify as terrorism.

So let's not get terrorized.  Note the kindness of strangers, in the aftermath, ranging from the runners who continued to run after the end of the race, straight to the hospital to donate blood to those who have opened their houses and apartments as safe havens to other strangers.  And note the excellent work of the first responders.
