    The Boston Marathon is a citywide holiday. The city pretty much closes down and everyone goes to various parts of the marathon and watch and cheer. It is a really really big deal in Boston. I mean we have the Sox playing at home every year on the day and people just go from the marathon to the game back to the marathon.

    Why should we do that? Your weak attempt at an agenda-pushing joke is disgusting.

    Yeah I get the crowd but it usually has some type of symbolism involved. Again maybe I am missing it. Bad deal either way.

    I'm watching the news, they are reporting confirmation that 4 people are being treated and some have severe injuries.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    You should probably restrain those reactionary temptations.

    I knew it was a big deal, and I guess if it was a terrorist deal it was just meant to hit as large a number of people possible.

    Anyway again I hope your friends are fine, and you here from them soon.

    I was thinking along the same lines but decided to wait a bit before posting something similar. Nevertheless ... the point is made.
