    Finally! A cartoon that shows what people do when a disaster like this occurs. Thank you Mr. Luckovich. Mr. Benson and Breen forgot the heroes in their art.
    It is at times like this we are reminded that we are neighbors above all else.
    A relative of mine walked past the explosion sites one hour earlier. While she is fine, not knowing at the time made me appreciate every person I saw running into the smoke and debris to help those caught in the explosion. The two soldiers in uniform, the latino gentleman in the cowboy hat with blood on his hands from helping the wounded, the young girl carrying a friend on her back out of harms way….
    The tv was full of images of people helping people.
    This morning, the news is full of people who offered their homes to visitors who were unable to get out of the city.
    I doubt seriously that anyone asked what political party a person supported before doing so.
    Gratefully,
    C.

    Don’t weep Mechanic… just decide that whatever happens, you will keep working for “Us” and not let the extremes to the right or left pull you from holding to a united center.
    If it was easy, everybody would do it.
    Trustingly,
    and trying to fix what’s broke,
    C.

    This is precisely what happened — so many, in fact, that the Red Cross had too much blood and asked people to donate later!
    As a proud Bostonian, I have been warmed by the response of people from all over the world on our behalf in the face of this tragedy. I had four people from Australia and China email me last night to see if my family was okay, and responses from others as they heard. There are many good people out there, and we should not forget that.

    There was one whack-job (whom I will not name) who was on TV claiming it was government-backed within HOURS of the bombing.
    One nitwit even asked Governor Patrick: “Is this another false flag attack staged attack to take our civil liberties?”
    Answer (with a withering stare): “No. Next question.”

    Let me guess the network… the same network that hosts Eric Rush, the commentator whose tweet was that Muslims “are evil, we should kill them all?” Glenn Beck already knows it’s Muslims too “because Americans who do things like this always target the government, not streets filled with people.” Beck has apparently never heard of Eric Rudolph or the Spokane MLK march white supremacists. He should listen to the news some time.

    My comments are getting deleted.
    I am just glad something like this didn’t happen at the Republican Convention or we might have a President Romney and 5 wars in the middle east and Korea.

    “Boston marathon bombing happened on same day as ‘controlled explosion’ drill by Boston bomb squad”, Mike Adams reports for Natural News.

    “What’s not yet being reported by the mainstream media is that a ‘controlled explosion’ was under way on the same day as the marathon explosion.

    As the Boston Globe tweeted today, ‘Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.’

    I remind you that during the 9/11 attacks, the US Air Force was conducting a “simulation” where terrorists hijackers had taken over passenger jets in order to fly them into the WTC towers.

    “Simulations” of a terrorist attack were also undergoing in 2005 in London, when the actual attacks took place.

    A third potential bomb explosion has been confirmed at JFK Library in Boston, according to authorities. Earlier, just before 3 p.m. two large bomb explosions were seen at the Boston Marathon route near the finish line, killing at least 2 and injuring at least 100 others, including as many as 6 in critical condition.
    At a new conference held just before 5 p.m. ET, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, confirmed that three explosive devices have hit Boston Monday afternoon; two at the marathon and a third at JFK Library. That third device has not been confirmed as being related to those at the marathon, but authorities have said they are treating it as if it is related.

    I’ve already heard some of the idiocracy taking right/left sides on this. Let’s try pulling together on this one, okay?

    Thanks, Mike, for honoring those Americans with courage, not the cowards.

    @Rickapolis

    Just have to wait until the ‘authorities’ tell us what happened.

    @ARodney

    I guess Eric Rush and Glenn Beck also know that the Oklahoma City bombing was also done by muslims (not)

    Oh, Radish, you’re not a 9/11 Truthist, are you? Really?
    We really don’t know enough yet about Boston — and I live here. It’s only been about 36 hours, for God’s sake.

    Don’t forget that those blood banks need our support everyday. Thanks for reminding us, Mike!
