I don't know that I have much to say about what happened in Boston, but I did want to comment on it a little bit.
I had heard, the morning it happened, the things they were doing for the marathon to honor the victims from Newtown. So my first thought when I heard about the explosions was that it was some gun nuts in some sort of senseless protest.
I was very happy to be wrong about that.
But I'm not sure I understand what did happen any better. I'm very glad they got the younger brother alive; I hope he sheds some light on why they did this.
But I really don't understand why a couple of Chechens would do anything like this. I mean, if they were attacking something Russian, it would make a little more sense to me. But this? No comprehension at all.
I hope the motive comes out; however it happens. Just so senseless; my heart goes out to the families affected (especially that of the boy who was killed, and whose mother and sister were also badly injured. I literally can't imagine how they're coping).
