Longtime reader and content provider (via his antics) DrMark was .75 miles (yes, racing) from the finish when the bomb blew.
Biologically, I may even be related to him. But I won't admit to that in person ever, or again on this blog.
Hearing of the bombing, my son asked, "Is DrMark dead?"
At which point I assured John that he was okay. I pointed out that there was NO WAY DrMark would be nearing the finish in 4 hours!
Furthermore, I told him that DrMark had 'built-in bomb protection' in terms of his corpulence.
Yes, I kid you not. Fat guys can run marathons! - though technically he didn't finish this one...
I did read/hear that initially Obama wouldn't call the incident *terror*. Figures. Not that I really care.
I mean some dippy broad yesterday told me she was extremely anxious to see what the President and other politicians would say.
The terrorists don't need to attack us....we're already goners if the public is at all like her.
So what happens next?
Well Boston is going to at the same time, change NOTHING about their naive geo-political stances and they will likely make a huge, perennial deal about this attack in terms of memorials and whatnot.
They will, of course, blame Bush and other preferred bogeymen...
