I'm still trying to figure out if anyone I know personally was injured during yesterday's bombing of the Boston Marathon. So far, it's just been a couple of close calls. As it happened, I was out of town yesterday, and only saw the news in the early evening.
What sort of explosive chemistry was used might provide some clues about the people who did this - different groups have different ideas about what makes the best catastrophe. What sort of thinking allows a human being to go ahead with an act like this - bombing a festive crowd of innocent spectators and families on a spring afternoon - is beyond my comprehension, though.
I'll be traveling today, so I probably won't have another post up. My condolences to everyone affected by this act, and for those who perpetrated it, honi soit qui mal y pense, in the sense of "Evil to those who think evil".
