CBS has been the best, by far. Scott Pelley has been excellent.

I'm guessing it was a domestic incident. Foreign terrorists would have already laid claim to it unless it was a state-sponsored incident, but I can't see any country drawing the ire and fire of the United States' military. Also, look at the timing of the event. If they were going for full impact they would have detonated right as the first runners were done (when more runners and spectators would have been there). That, to me, would have indicated an international and foreign group. Also, plenty of agencies are saying "We have heard nothing about a potential attack." With the US focused upon the War on Terror, I find it completely implausible that this would have happened without some sort of information being passed along.

That said, violence isn't going anywhere. It has been apart of civilizations for plenty of years and inciting fear and terror has been a weapon by "terrorists" for thousands of years. It isn't going anywhere, until we become a "police state." And even then, Nazi Germany, Mussolini, Stalin, etc. all faced resistance and labeled them "terrorists" as well.

Doesn't change the magnitude of the tragedy and I wish violence and peace would come to this world as well. I just don't think it's possible with all the whack jobs in this world.

All these children they are talking about in health crises makes me so sad.

And of course. Those mother fucking fucktards (excuse my French) from Westboro plan to protest the funerals of those fallen from today's tragic event.

Man. I hate them. With a passion.

Patton Oswalt's status on FB

Quote:
Boston. Fucking horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, "Well, I've had it with humanity."

But I was wrong. I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, "The good outnumber you, and we always will."

I can't even watch the coverage on this anymore...I don't get why New England is getting pummeled by these tragedies.
